Identification of critical erosion prone areas in the small agricultural watershed using USLE, GIS and Remote Sensing.
Posteriormente se efectuaron investigaciones tendentes a revisar y actualizar los factores de la USLE y se obtuvo la Ecuacion Universal de Perdida de Suelos Revisada (RUSLE) [39].
Nevertheless, in spite of this important development of erosion models, the USLE continues to be a highly accepted and used model (Hood et al.
The USLE assumes that soils can tolerate some erosion each year, generally 2240 to 11,200 kg/ha (1 to 5 tons/acre), which depends on the type and depth of soil.
* determining individual components of the USLE for specific locations.
To demonstrate erosion prediction principles, this chapter will present the USLE technology in SI units, with RUSLE enhancements where possible, and will also discuss the extended prediction capabilities of RUSLE (Renard et al., 1997), RUSLE2 (Foster et al., 2000), and WEPP (Flanagan & Livingston, 1995).
However, good agreement has been found between some field measurements and the predictions of the USLE. Freebairn et al.
At the heart of the USLE is the assumption that a certain soil loss can be tolerated because soil-forming processes will replace lost soil.
Usle sometimes extends these forms to the physical edges of the supports, as in the dense ribbons and underlying architecture of Nudo Abierto (Open Knot) and Urban S.
