Abstract: 

Soil erosion on upland areas is a highly complex phenomenon. The reflection of effects of such feature on sloping surfaces results in many complicated processes. If semi-arid conditions are dominat in these areas, linear erosion forms are as gullies, rills and ravine types.
Sloping surface in the uplands with semi-arid climate are very sensitive to environment disturbance and soil texture type intensifies erosion. Gullies are sensitive to ranges of environmental disturbance so they can provide insight into environmental changes. Shoor river catchment (located from 36o 5’ to 37o 20’ N and from 46o 43’ to 47o 15’ E) in recent times is experiencing many changes in sloping surfaces.
This article is concerned with the investigation and analyzing of erosion factors. Universal Erosion Models (USLE) are used in the area and the area was zonned by GIS. The results of study suggest that slope and soil textural type play major roles in soil erosion increment.
The results of field study show that people's impact on slope surfaces is very intensive and also these results show that the decrease of plant covers has important role in the formation and development of many types of erosion. In the recent times, the development of deep gully and the amount of rill depths is high. These changes are important reasons for the increase of amount of sediment and their deposition on floodplains and also behind the dams.
