The present paper aims to study complex degradation processes and an assessment of these processes by presenting the soils affected by degradation as well as quantifying the intensity. The surveys on the identification and mapping of degraded soils have been carried out between 2012 and 2017. Following the correlation of field data with laboratory analyses and previously existing scientific information, the soils of the CriÅŸurilor Plain soils with low fertility potential due to the degradation processes were identified and mapping of surface areas was developed in order to elaborate the complex of meliorative measures to improve the trophic characteristics, in order to increase the fertility potential and establish the assortment of cultivated plants.

Keywords: erosion, clogging, compaction, sedimentation, water erosion.
