RUSLE soil erosion model structure

Figure File Created 25 Oct 2016 Last modified 25 Oct 2016
The RUSLE is an empirical model that calculates long-term average annual soil loss due to sheet and rill erosion. The model considers six main factors controlling soil erosion: the erosivity of the eroding agents (water), the erodibility of the soil (including stoniness), the slope length and slope steepness of the land, the land cover and management (or human practices designed to control erosion).
