Examines the nature of gully side wall erosion. Studies gully growth patterns and shows that side wall erosion is often dominant in the headwater portion of the gully system. Develops a model of side wall evolution which considers flume development. Active and semi active side walls may be dominated by rainsplash and slopewash processes. Erosion and sediment yield from a section of gully side wall are rough proportional to the surface area ratio. Examines the changes in side wall sediment yield with time. (C.J.U.)
