A recently-developed tool used to evaluate soil erosion is the Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP) -- a new generation runoff and erosion prediction technology created by the USDA-ARS.
"That is what WEPP - short for the Water Erosion Prediction Project
- is all about," he says.
The Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP) model (Flanagan and Nearing, 1995) with adjustments for carbon dioxide (C[O.sub.2]) effects on evapotranspiration and biomass production, and the CLImate GENerator (CLIGEN) (Nicks and Gander, 1994) were used to simulate the impacts of climate change on soil erosion (e.g., Favis-Mortlock and Savabi, 1996; Pruski and Nearing, 2002).
WEPP (Water Erosion Prediction Project
) is one such process-based model for runoff and soil erosion prediction (Laflen et al.
The Integrated Training Area Management Program at Fort Riley is testing the Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP) watershed model's applicability and adaptability to predict soil loss and surface runoff from military training lands.

Three models are used in the assessment: SIBERIA, the Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP) (Flanagan and Livingston 1995), and the RUSLE.
QUERIM can indicate areas of interest within a larger region, but other quantitative methods such as the Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP) (USDA-ARS 1995), may have to be used in these areas for final conservation planning.

ABSTRACT: Three different approaches using geographical information systems (GIS) and digital elevation models (DEMs) are described and evaluated for applying the Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP) model to assess water erosion in small watersheds.
There are alternative technologies, such as the Water Erosion Prediction Project
(WEPP; Lane and Nearing, 1989), and users should consider the strengths and weaknesses of these technologies before selecting one for a particular application.
