|Summary:||Studies, in the key area, in the equatorial Andes, Republic of Ecuador, Cotopaxi Province, near capital Latacunga, showed that the area is characterized by a favorable prerequisites for the development of erosion processes. Was studied activity of 91 gully which length of more than 130 feet. Three groups of gullies according to the degree of erosion activity were identified in apical part. To the group with high erosive activity relates 10% of gullies. The average degree - 13%. The low degree of erosion activity observed for 77% gullies. Despite the favorable conditions for the development of linear erosion forms, there is a significant prevalence of gullies which low degree activity of erosion. Active accumulation influence even on steep-inclined surfaces acts as a deterrent to erosion.|
