Even though it can be seen as a natural occurrence, soil erosion is also instigated by other causes. These factors could either be naturally triggered or due to human activities. Soil erosion typically develops slowly and gradually expand to be a menace to the landscape. Mild rills, for example, occurs at its initial stage and grow to be huge galleys which are not only dangerous but also problematic to human activities. Generally, soil erosion is the relocation of the top soil layer from its original location. It leaves the affected area exposed to more sporadic erosion making it a sequential occurrence. Below are some of the main causes of soil erosion.
