The papers in this book provide new information on several aspects of soil erosion
and applications of the National Resources Inventory (NRI). They were commissioned
following a planning workshop in July 1984 and were presented in December 1984
during a national convocation, “Physical Dimensions of the Erosion Problem.” The
workshop and convocation were held by the National Research Council's Board on
Agriculture in response to a request from the Soil Conservation Service of the U.S.
