The objective of this paper is to describe the effects of the principal physical and chemical factors on the rate of erosion of saturated cohesive soils. It is hoped that this work stimulates more comprehensive laboratory and field measurements of the erosion of cohesive soils with a view of obtaining relationships for the erodibility in terms of easily measured physical and chemical properties of the soil.
