Soil erosion in the form of badlands is a common phenomenon throughout southern Guam. Badlands compared to
any other land cover have the highest erosion rate. Consequently, they contribute the highest amount of sediments to
the marine environment. Both human and natural factors may be responsible for badland development. To manage
soil erosion, specifically on badlands, in an effective way, a better understanding of the processes associated with
badland dynamics is essential.
