DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED EROSION CONTROL INFORMATION SYSTEM CASE STUDY OF MINISTRY OF WORKS. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
Soil Erosion is an endemic problem in different part of the world especially places where there is marks of seasonal rainfall. This overland flow resulting from rain splash erosion and through flow of surface, flow appear to be too extremes of a continuous sequence and is a possible condition for gully development. In order to prevent this gully development a body must or has been established to study and check the erosion development in so many areas. As this project tends to focus on the erosion control system in Enugu using ministry of works as our case study. Our limit does not extend more than Enugu, Ministry of works in the body responsible for the control of erosion in Enugu state.
This project is specifically on erosion control information system
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The soil particles must be detects from the parent soil mass, Agriculture which occupy over two third of the eastern region area and land mass is seriously threatened by accelerates soil erosion which is systematically reducing the land area available for agriculture. Causes, effects and control measures are always way been the confusing part of resolving the erosion problem in the eastern region. Erosion is of different forms the common one along our roads includes, “Gully erosion”
Gully erosion occurs in areas of strong relief or loose sandy soils. It creates deep gorges or gullies which dissect the land surface and hind movement and the cultivation of land. It is an advanced stage of rill erosion where surface channels has been eroded to the point where they cannot be smoothed over by normal tillage operations. Gully erosion is simply defined as the run off concentration in channels greater than rills large channels.
Often, gullies can be prevented if good land conservation measures are practiced on the farm.
