چکیده

هدف از این مطالعه بررسی اثرات تغییر کاربری اراضی بر فرسایش‏پذیری خاک در بخشی از حوزه آبخیز زاینده رود بوده است. بدین منظور، برخی از ویژگی‏های خاک شامل توزیع اندازه ذرات خاک، درصد سنگریزه، جرم ویژه ظاهری، نفوذپذیری نیمرخ خاک، کد ساختمان و کد نفوذپذیری، ماده آلی، کربنات کلسیم، میانگین وزنی قطر خاکدانه و مقاومت برشی لایه سطحی خاک اندازه‏گیری گردید. فرسایش‏پذیری خاک با استفاده از یک دستگاه شبیه‏ساز باران جهت اعمال بارندگی با شدت (mm h-1) 30  به مدت 30 دقیقه در پلاتی با مساحت  m225/0 و شیب 9% در دو کاربری مرتع و مرتع تخریب شده اندازه‏گیری گردید. تجزیه آماری در قالب طرح کاملا تصادفی انجام گردید که در آن تاثیر بافت و تغییر کاربری اراضی مورد تجزیه و تحلیل قرار گرفتند. نتایج نشان داد کلاس بافت خاک تاثیر معنی‏داری بر فرسایش‏پذیری خاک در سطح احتمال 5 درصد نداشته و تغییرات فرسایش‏پذیری منطقه تحت تاثیر کاربری اراضی بوده است. میانگین فرسایش‏پذیری خاک در کاربری مرتع 05/0 (ton h MJ-1 mm-1) و در مرتع تخریب شده 09/0 (ton h MJ-1 mm-1) به دست آمد. براساس نتایج به دست آمده از توابع انتقالی مربوط به هر کاربری مشاهده شد که ذرات رس و شن درشت (86/0R2=) در کاربری مرتع و مقاومت برشی لایه سطحی و کد نفوذپذیری (90/0R2=) در کاربری مرتع تخریب شده در سطح 5 درصد نسبت به سایر ویژگی‏های خاک برای توجیه رفتار فرسایش‏پذیری خاک مناسب‏تر می‏باشند.

چکیده [English]

Introduction Soil erodibility can be viewed as the integral result of the processes determining the infiltration of rain into the soil and of the processes determining the soil’s resistance to the detachment of its particles and their subsequent transport (Lal, 1988). It is generally considered as an inherent soil property with a constant value for a given soil type and widely adopted as an important factor in soil erosion prediction models, such as the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE), and the Revised USLE (RUSLE). The erodibility factor, commonly known as the K factor, in the USLE was defined as the average rate of soil loss per unit of rainfall erosivity index from a cultivated continuous fallow plot, on a 9% slope 22.1 m long. Soil erodibility factor K is not only an internal factor indicating the amount of soil loss, but also the basis for the quantitative study of soil erosion. Soil erodibility is closely related to the basic physicochemical characteristics of soils. The total aggregate content, 1–10 mm aggregate content, aggregation degree, aggregate dispersion coefficient and erosion rate are indexes for the analysis of soil anti-erosion capability. Not only may soil erosion be different for various types of soils, but also it is different for the same type of soil under different climate conditions or land use management. Different land use systems might alter several soil properties and processes. Kosmas et al. (2000) reported that land use change could impact soil physical, chemical, and biological properties. Studies by Duiker et al. (2001) showed that land use changes from natural and semi-natural vegetation to cultivated and grazed lands affect soil bulk density, porosity and water storage, water infiltration and water flow characteristics and surface runoff. Abbaszadeh Afshar et al. (2010) found that organic matter content and bulk density were greater in pasture soils than in dry farm soils. Kay (2000) showed that large aggregate sizes and high organic matter content protect soils against splash detachment. Although there are many studies on land use impacts on soil erodibility, to the best of the authors’ knowledge, no study has of yet been reported on the effects of land use change on soil erodibility in Zayandeh-Rood watershed. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigate the impacts of different land uses on soil erodibility in a part of Zayandeh-Rood watershed.
Materials and Methods For this purpose, soil properties including particle size distribution, gravel percent, bulk density, permeability of soil profile, Structure code and permeability code, organic matter, calcium carbonate equivalent, mean weight diameter of aggregates and surface shear strength were measured. Soil erodibility was measured with a rainfall simulation device with rainfall intensity of 30 mm h-1 and 30 min duration in a plot with 0.25 m2 area and 9% slop in two land uses, namely pasture and degraded pasture. A completely randomized design was used in which soil texture and the land use changes were analyzed. The multiple-linear regression analysis was used to relate soil erodibility factor to different soil parameters.
Results and Discussion The influence of land use change on soil erodibility was investigated based on simulated rainfall in field conditions. The findings of this study demonstrated that a considerable amount of soil erodibility occurred in the study region characterized by low organic matter and mismanagement. On average, soil erodibility was significantly affected in the Zayandeh-Rood watershed, Iran, by the land use system (i.e., soil structure and management practices) rather than by the soil textural class. Average soil erodibility was obtained in pasture land use 0.05 (ton h MJ-1 mm-1) and in degraded pasture 0.09 (ton h MJ-1 mm-1). Low soil organic matter content in the degraded pasture land is probably caused by livestock overgrazing and ultimately grazing. Based on the results obtained of the transfer functions in each land uses, it was observed that clay and coarse sand particles (R2=0.86) in pasture land uses and surface shear strength and permeability code (R2=0.90) in degraded-rangeland at the 5% level compared to other soil properties were more suitable parameters for estimating of soil erodibility. Thus, vegetation cover protection was recommended to soil conservation in this region.
