Short summary
The paper presents the results of the study of gully erosion within the Pre-Kama region (Russia). It's based on monitoring (1984–1994 and 2015–2018) and the interpretation of high-resolution satellite images. The results suggested that the gully erosion have reduced. The main reason for the significant decrease in gully erosion was the increase in winter-spring air temperatures. The impact of land use, as well as erosion control measures was found to be less important.
