By: Atiqur Rahman & Asif, The authors are Professor and Assistant Professor, Department of Geography, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, respectively Soil erosion is the removal of the top layer by natural agents. However, deforestation, overgrazing and infrastructural development accelerate soil erosion. As soil is a critical natural resource, the risk of its erosion must be addressed urgently. Use of modern technologies like remote sensing and GIS can help build an understanding towards risk mitigation.
