RUSLE soil erosion model structure
The soil erosion indicator is comprised of two sub-indicators. The first one is a cell-based map that estimates the rate of soil erosion by water in tonnes per hectare per year for cells of 100 by 100 m for the EU. The second one is a cell-based map that estimates the wind erosion rates in tonnes per hectare per year for cells of c. 1 by 1 km for EU Member States. Both indicators are predicted estimates rather than actual values.
