Sažetak

This article examines soil erosion and erosion processes in badlands and presents the necessity and importance of their research. We present our findings regarding measurements of erosion processes that we carried out in a flysch region in the Dragonja River Basin in southwest Slovenia and in a dolomite region in central Slovenia in the Polhov Gradec Hills. Soil erosion was measured for various land-use types: an olive grove, a meadow, and a forest. Special emphasis was placed on interrill erosion, which is almost imperceptible without measurement. The measurement results served as a foundation for the importance of studying erosion processes as well as various applied aspects such as obtaining data for verification of erosion models, estimating damage caused by erosion, raising risk awareness due to erosion hazard, and improving coastal management.
