Empirical models of annual post-fire erosion on mulched and unmulched hillslopes

CATENA, Vol. 163 (April 2018), pp. 276-287,


[Highlights] [::] Measured hillslope erosion with and without mulch following the 2012 High Park Fire. [::] Mulched slopes had fourfold lower erosion rates during the first year after fire. [::] Bare soil was the strongest control on erosion rates. [::] Empirical models predict erosion using bare soil, precipitation, and flow length. [::] Empirical model performance ranged from poor to good for different fires. [Abstract] Erosion is one of the primary land management concerns following wildfire. This study examines controls on post-fire hillslope-scale erosion for the 2012 High Park ...


Methodological approach for the assessment of environmental effects of agroforestry at the landscape scale

Ecological Engineering, Vol. 29, No. 4. (April 2007), pp. 450-462,


Silvoarable agroforestry, the deliberate combined use of trees and arable crops on the same area of land, has been proposed in order to improve the environmental performance of agricultural systems in Europe. Based on existing models and algorithms, we developed a method to predict the environmental effects of SAF at a farm and landscape scale. The method is comprised of an assessment of soil erosion, nitrogen leaching, carbon sequestration, and landscape diversity and allowed the comparison of the environmental performance of ...


Soil erosion modelling

In Landform Dynamics and Evolution in Romania (2017), pp. 397-423,


Surface soil erosion modelling has benefited and continues to benefit from the progress in information technology area and statistical and mathematical processing of spatial data. In Romania, quantitative studies concerning soil erosion have a tradition of over 70 years, beginning with the establishment of experimental runoff plots. An important step in the history of soil erosion research in Romania is the adaptation of the universal soil loss equation (USLE) to the specific environmental and anthropogenic conditions form our country (ROMSEM). This ...


Predicting soil erosion with RUSLE in Mediterranean agricultural systems at catchment scale

Soil Science, Vol. 174, No. 5. (May 2009), pp. 272-282,


Accurate assessment of soil loss is essential for sustainable agricultural production, management, and conservation planning, especially in productive rain-fed agroecosystems and protected areas. The European Union considers soil as a nonrenewable resource and identifies that soil degradation has strong impacts on soil and water resources. In this work, the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation model was applied within a geographic information system in the Estaña catchment (Spanish pre-Pyrenees) as representative of a Mediterranean agroecosystem to elaborate a map of soil erosion ...


Application of Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) to mountainous forests in Japan

Journal of Forest Research, Vol. 5, No. 4. (2000), pp. 231-236,


Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE), originally developed by the USDA for agricultural lands and then used throughout the world, was applied in mountainous forest terrain in Japan. The slope length and steepness factors were extended for long slope lengths and steep slopes by recalculating the data from available literature in Japan and by using data from supplementary erosion experiments. As such, we conclude that the USLE can be used successfully to estimate surface erosion on long, steep mountainous forest slopes. The ...


Assessment of soil erosion under woodlands using USLE in China

Frontiers of Earth Science, Vol. 5, No. 2. (2011), pp. 150-161,


Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE), originally developed by the USDA for agricultural lands and then used throughout the world, was applied in mountainous forest terrain in China. The woodland area was divide into 100 m × 100 m grid cells. The ArcInfo 9.2 GIS software provided spatial input data was used to predict the spatial distribution of the average annual soil loss on grid basis. The average rainfall erositivity factor (R) for national woodlands was found to be 21–1798 MJ·mm·ha−1·h−1·a−1. The ...


Estimation of the USLE cover and management factor C using satellite remote sensing: A review

In Geoinformatics, 2011 19th International Conference on (June 2011), pp. 1-5,
Keywords: c-factor   remote-sensing   review   usle  


Soil erosion has been one of the worldwide environmental disasters which severely threaten the sustainable development of socio-economic, natural resources, and the environment. The Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) is the most widely used model to quantify soil erosion. The cover and management factor C is perhaps the most important USLE factor because it represents conditions that can most easily be managed to reduce erosion. Satellite remote sensing can contribute through providing spatial data to assessment of C factor. Thus, many ...


Evaluating the efficacy of wood shreds for mitigating erosion

Journal of Environmental Management, Vol. 90, No. 2. (February 2009), pp. 779-785,


An erosion control product made by shredding on-site woody materials was evaluated for mitigating erosion through a series of rainfall simulations. Tests were conducted on bare soil and soil with 30, 50, and 70% cover on a coarse and a fine-grained soil. Results indicated that the wood product known as wood shreds reduced runoff and soil loss from both soil types. Erosion mitigation ranged from 60 to nearly 100% depending on the soil type and amount of concentrated flow and wood ...


Mapping soil erosion susceptibility using remote sensing and GIS: a case of the Upper Nam Wa Watershed, Nan Province, Thailand

Environmental Geology In Environmental Geology, Vol. 57, No. 3. (2009), pp. 695-705,


Land degradation is still a very common problem in the mountains of Asia because of inappropriate land use practice in steep topography. Many studies have been carried out to map shifting cultivation and areas susceptible to soil erosion. Mostly, estimated soil loss is taken as the basis to classify the level of soil loss susceptibility of area. Factors that influence soil erosion are: rainfall erosivity, soil erodibility, slope length and steepness, crop management and conservation practices. Thus the reliability of estimated ...


Life cycle assessment of biomass production: development of a methodology to improve the environmental indicators and testing with fiber sorghum energy crop

Biomass and Bioenergy, Vol. 34, No. 10. (12 October 2010), pp. 1513-1522,


At the Biomass Research Centre – University of Perugia some LCA studies were carried out on different biomass chains, using a detailed software (Simapro 7.0) and the EcoIndicator 99 model in order to evaluate the global burden. Results showed that EcoIndicator 99 lacks some important features (e.g. freshwater consumption, nutrient emissions into water, soil erosion) that are necessary in evaluating the environmental load of energy crops. Therefore a new LCA methodology, tailored to biomass production, was developed, in which all resources ...
