A new methodology for estimating rainfall aggressiveness risk based on daily rainfall records for multi-decennial periods

Science of The Total Environment, Vol. 615 (2018), pp. 564-571


[Highlights] [::] A new methodology is proposed to estimate the rainfall aggressiveness risk. [::] This methodology is based on daily rainfall records. [::] A new synthesis parameter based on Modified Fournier and Oliver's indices is used. [::] It is calibrated with respect to the erosivity R factor for a simultaneity period. [::] The SW of Iberian Peninsula has been selected to test its regional application. [Abstract] The temporal irregularity of rainfall, characteristic of a Mediterranean climate, corresponds to the irregularity of the environmental effects on soil. We used ...


More rain, less soil: long-term changes in rainfall intensity with climate change

Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, Vol. 41, No. 4. (30 March 2016), pp. 563-566,


This commentary discusses the role of long-term climate change in driving increases in soil erosion. Assuming that land use and management remain effectively constant, we discuss changes in the ability of rainfall to cause erosion (erosivity), using long daily rainfall data sets from southeast England. An upward trend in mean rainfall per rain day is detected at the century-plus timescale. Implications for soil erosion and sediment delivery are discussed and evidence from other regions reviewed. We conclude that rates of soil ...

Modeling spatial patterns of saturated areas: a comparison of the topographic wetness index and a dynamic distributed model

Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 373, No. 1-2. (June 2009), pp. 15-23,


Topography is often one of the major controls on the spatial pattern of saturated areas, which in turn is a key to understanding much of the variability in soils, hydrological processes, and stream water quality. The topographic wetness index (TWI) has become a widely used tool to describe wetness conditions at the catchment scale. With this index, however, it is assumed that groundwater gradients always equal surface gradients. To overcome this limitation, we suggest deriving wetness indices based on simulations of ...


Identifying erosive periods by using RUSLE factors in mountain fields of the Central Spanish Pyrenees

Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, Vol. 12, No. 2. (6 March 2008), pp. 523-535,


The Mediterranean environment is characterized by strong temporal variations in rainfall volume and intensity, soil moisture and vegetation cover along the year. These factors play a key role on soil erosion. The aim of this work is to identify different erosive periods in function of the temporal changes in rainfall and runoff characteristics (erosivity, maximum intensity and number of erosive events), soil properties (soil erodibility in relation to freeze-thaw processes and soil moisture content) and current tillage practices in a set ...


Application of GIS tools for Leça River Basin soil erosion (Northern Portugal) evaluation

WIT Transactions on Ecology and the Environment, Vol. 124 (18 August 2009), pp. 267-278,


Applying GIS-based RUSLE methodology, the main goal of the present study is to forecast soil loss and identify areas of high erosion potential in the Leça River Basin, located in Northern Portugal. The rasterlayered model was structured in ArcGIS for two different scales: grid cell sizes of 10 and 30 meters. The average annual soil loss in Leça River Basin was estimated at 33.2 t/ha, which produces a sediment yield of 52 000 m3/year. It was also estimated that 31% of ...


A RUSLE approach to model suspended sediment load in the Lo river (Vietnam): Effects of reservoirs and land use changes

Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 422-423 (February 2012), pp. 17-29,


This study addresses the problem of modelling sediment erosion at the catchment scale, in order to predict the possible impact of reservoirs and land use changes on sediment load in South East Asia. The investigated basin is the Lo river basin, (38165 km2 in Viet Tri), a left tributary of the Red River, where the Thac Ba and the recently built Tuyen Quang reservoirs have already been changing downstream sediment load since 1971 and 2005 when they were, respectively, in operations. ...


Seasonal and spatial patterns of erosivity in a tropical watershed of the Colombian Andes

Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 314, No. 1-4. (25 November 2005), pp. 177-191,


The Dosquebradas Basin, in the central coffee growing region of Colombia, covers an area of 58 km<SUP>2</SUP> between 1350 and 2150 m of elevation, with an annual precipitation of 2600 3200 mm. Seasonal erosivity (EI30), as defined by the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE), was calculated for 11 years of record (1987 1997) from six pluviographic stations located within 21 km of the basin. Regression models for each station indicated that storm rainfall explained 61 70% of the variation in storm erosivity. Individual storms represented as much as ...


A new procedure to estimate the RUSLE EI30 index, based on monthly rainfall data and applied to the Algarve region, Portugal

Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 250, No. 1-4. (September 2001), pp. 12-18,


One of the best indicators of the potential erosion risks is the rainfall–runoff erosivity factor (R) of the revised universal soil loss equation (RUSLE). Frequently, however, there is not enough data available to compute the R value, and other parameters, such as the modified Fournier index (Fmod), are used instead. But RUSLE is less effective if only the alternative procedures exist. One of the major discrepancies between R and the alternative parameters is time resolution: individual storms are used to calculate ...


Estimating RUSLE's rainfall factor in the part of Italy with a Mediterranean rainfall regime

Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, Vol. 8 (2004), pp. 103-107


The computation of the erosion index (EI), which is basic to the determination of the rainfall-runoff erosivity factor R of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE), is tedious and time-consuming and requires a continuous record of rainfall intensity. In this study, a power equation(r<SUP>2</SUP> = 0.867) involving annual erosion index (EI<SUB>30-annual</SUB>) in the Mediterranean part of Italy is obtained. Data from 12 raingauge stations are used to derive and then test a regional relationship for estimating the erosion index from only three rainfall parameters. Erosivity rainfall data derived ...


Estimation of potential soil erosion for river Perkerra catchment in Kenya

Water Resources Management In Water Resources Management, Vol. 19, No. 2. (April 2005), pp. 133-143,


River Perkerra catchment with an area of 1207 km2 is drained by River Perkerra, which is one of the rivers flowing into Lake Baringo whose drainage area is 6820 km2. The lake is in a semi-arid area of Kenya. Its depth has reduced from 8 m in 1972 to 2.5 m in 2003 due to siltation resulting from high erosion rates in the catchment. The entire catchment is characterised by very steep slopes on the hillsides and gentle slopes in the ...
