How can people reduce soil erosion on steep slopes?
people can reduce soil erosion by using less resources and polluting beause it makes the earth to be less dependent and then starts to fall apart and collaspe. This is not good for future events. There is another way called terracing whichs helps reduce erosion on steep slopes. ...

Is a butte a constructive or destructive?
Destructive because its sides are steep which is caused by weathering and erosion. I think it could also be constructive but it depends on where it is...Is it in the desert? Then the sand will cover it and the weathering and erosion will destruct it...? What do you think? ...

Asked in Mapping and Cartography
Compare the way steep slopes are represented on a topographic map with the way gentle slopes are represented?
Steep slopes are indicated by the lines of contour being close together, whereas gentle slopes have the lines farther apart. ...
What soil conservation measures can be adopted to prevent erosion?
The following soil conservation measures may be adopted to prevent soil erosion: * contour farming in moderate slopes * vegetative measures to trap soil in steep areas * structural measures to trap soil in steep areas * reforestation in upper watershed areas. ...
