This note presents additional information on the effects of pore-water composition on the resistance of a consolidated natural soil to surface erosion. A comparison of specimen erosion rates versus shear stress is presented. A tabulation shows results of various salt concentrations on erosion rates.

Subject Headings: Erosion | Consolidated soils | Shear stress | Pore water | Load and resistance factor design | Comparative studies | Salts
