4675. Mulla, D.J.. 1986. Distribution of slope steepness in the Palouse region of Washington.. Soil Sci. Soc. Am. J. 50:1401-1406.
The quantitative analysis of topography conducted in this study shows that considerable spatial variability of slope steepness occurs between differing slope aspects of large areas in the Palouse. This information could be used in developing improved runoff and erosion prediction models that account for spatial variability of topography over large areas. Gaussian frequency distributions provided the best statistical description of the data.
