What is the process of soil erosion and its flow called?

In splash erosion, the impact of a falling raindrop creates a small crater in the soil, ejecting soil particles. If the runoff has sufficient flow energy, it will transport loosened soil particles (sediment) down the slope. Sheet erosion is the transport of loosened soil particles by overland flow.
