Ja os fatores L e S sao utilizados em conjuntos, formando assim o fator topografico LS, que e considerado um dos mais importantes da USLE, pois indica o efeito da declividade e do comprimento de rampa na erosao do solo.
El objetivo de este trabajo fue realizar la estimacion cuantitativa de la erosion hidrica superficial con SIG, mediante la aplicacion del modelo USLE, definiendo la tolerancia de perdidas de suelo maximas admisibles en la cuenca serrana del arroyo Napaleofu (sudeste de la provincia de Buenos Aires, Argentina).
A Equacao Universal de Perda de Solo Modificada (MUSLE) e uma modificacao da USLE que, ao contrario da ultima, desenvolvida para a estimativa da erosao media anual em vertentes (Wischmeier & Smith, 1978), e usada na estimativa do aporte de sedimentos na escala de bacias hidrograficas e por eventos individuais (Eq.
Kyocera s tax equity investment with USLE enables commercial buildings and schools to benefit from environmentally friendly solar power with no up-front investment, said Steve Hill, president of Kyocera Solar Inc.
1993), the topographic factor (LS) and the cover and management factor C are the factors that greatly influence the USLE model's overall efficiency.
Os resultados demonstram que a simulacao da USLE acoplada em um SIG representa uma importante ferramenta no planejamento agricola e ambiental na bacia, pois possibilita identificar as areas com maior risco de erosao e, portanto, mais suscetiveis a degradacao do solo.
Rainfall runoff (R) is a key factor of the USLE model and is determined by local climate conditions.
Every conservation plan written by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service has been based on soil erosion calculations derived from USLE or its successors, the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) and version 2 (RUSLE2).
The USLE began as a fairly simple equation that gave its answer in tons of soil lost per acre per year by multiplying five factors, with the numbers for each factor derived from paper tables of figures for different parts of the country and different soils.
27] investigated the sediment delivery ratio based on the ratio receiving drainage length to total drainage length by using WinGrid system and computed soil erosion using USLE model.
