Abstract: 

Introduction: Piping is a subsurface form of erosion which involves the removal of subsurface soils in pipe-like erosional channels to a free or escape exit. Although it is one of the coolest and rarest Erosion phenomena that can be formed in any weather conditions, but generally it develops in geological formation with low infiltration capacity and high soluble minerals. Piping materials are commonly highly erodible. However the situation is not fully understood, especially in terms of geomorphology. Compared with surface soil erosion by water, subsurface erosion (piping) is generally less studied and harder to quantify. However, wherever piping occurs, it is often a significant or even the main sediment source (Verachtert et. al., 2011). This erosion process might occur at any crack that exists in the earth structure, due to differential settlements, seismic movements, tension stresses, or holes caused by dry roots or gnawing animals (rabbits, rats, and etcetera). The erosion starts at any point where the seepage water discharges and works toward the reservoir, gradually enlarging the seepage channel. Field scientists studying badland processes in Mediterranean and Semi-arid climates require assurances that the material in which gullies are presented is not dispersive (Faulkner, 2010).
