Résumé
In this study erosional processes were investigated on different aspects (slopes) of Akziyaret Hill located on 15 km north of Şanlıurfa, Turkey. It aims to find out the rate and quantities of erosional material which were transported from the different aspects of slopes. The methodology was based on both field measurements and laboratory analysis. Results have shown that there is a weak but positive correlation between amount/rate of sediment transported and amount of total rainfall, while stronger correlation was found between amount of sediment transported and torrential rainfall. In terms of selective sediment transport it was found that less amount and low intensity of rainfall gave rise to greater size selectivity, while a weak sediment selectivity (low sorting) was noticed for the intense and heavy rainfall.
