Abstract: Abstract: Surface erosion is one of the most ubiquitous processes that alter exposed archeological sites and often result in significant data loss, Impacts due to surface erosion occur naturally, but can be unwittingly increased by many management activities, usually in the form of surface disruption of the archeological site or adjoining ground, This report reviews surface erosion/disruption processes and their effect upon archeological sites; reviews management activities that occur on lands under US Army Corps of Engineers jurisdiction and may influence rates of surface erosion/disruption; and examines ways of managing sites to reduce surface erosion/disruption potential.
