|Abstract||Runoff and erosion from three mulch treatments were measured on a surface coal mine near Hanna, Wyoming. Treatments included no mulch, standing grain mulch and crimped straw mulch. Treatments were subjected to artificial rainfall generated by a portable rainfall simulator during three successive growing seasons. Soil loss data indicate a peak in erosion hazard during the summer following seeding of the perennial species. Soil losses were initially least on the straw mulch and greatest on the no mulch treatments although soil loss differences declined by the third season. Generally, soil loss amounts varied directly with ground cover. Runoff data from all treatments indicate a general decline in infiltration rates during the study period. Vegetation, soil loss and runoff data were used to calibrate a computer simulation model of runoff and erosion. Results obtained indicate small amounts of soil loss even for very infrequent, intense one-hour design storms on moderate slopes regardless of mulching method. Simulations indicated that erosion hazards are highly dependent upon antecedent soil moisture conditions and the time distribution of storm intensities. 19 references, 4 figures, 5 tables.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
