CORINE is a qualitative erosion risk model that shows the severity of soil erosion in a specific area by classifying it into low, moderate and high risk.
The CORINE erosion risk model is an estimation that provides a trend in soil erosion so that high, moderate and low erosion risk areas could be identified.
