Where has all the soil gone?

Did you know that raindrops - little old raindrops - are a key driver of soil erosion? When they hit the ground they can not only splash soil over a metre from its original position, but can also stop water moving into the soil when these tiny soil particles block soil pores. Covering soils with mulch or leaving leaves beneath trees not only cools soils, it also prevents soil erosion.
