The results of this study demonstrate that RECPs are effective in minimizing soil losses in comparison to both bare soil and vegetated soil conditions, providing C-factors ranging between 0.00 and 0.26 for the RECPs tested. The use of vegetation in combination with the RECPs further reduced C-factors to 0.00 to 0.12 for the RECPs tested. Vegetation was found to provide RECPs with an additional layer of protection to further reduce the effective openings and kinetic energy of raindrops.A 150 watt incandescent bulb (Philips 150 Watt DuraMax Long Life Soft White) was used as the light source, ...
