Identification of eroded areas using remote sensing in a badlands landscape on marls in the central Spanish Pyrenees

CATENA, Vol. 76, No. 3. (March 2009), pp. 182-190,


Identification of erosion areas on a regional scale can be very useful for environmental planning, and can help reduce land degradation and sediment yield to streams and reservoirs. Remote sensing techniques were used to determine erosion and erosion risk areas in a badlands landscape in the Ésera River catchment (Spanish Pyrenees). The size, sparse vegetation cover, and high erosion level in the badlands, enabled good visual and digital discrimination relative to other land covers and surfaces. The maximum likelihood algorithm was ...


Visual validation of the e-RUSLE model applied at the pan-European scale

Scientific Topics Focus, Vol. 1 (2014), mri11a13,


Validating soil erosion estimates at regional or larger scale is still extremely challenging. The common procedures are not technically and financially applicable for large spatial extents, despite this some options are still applicable. For validating the European map of soil erosion by water calculated using the approach proposed in Bosco et al. [1] we applied alternative qualitative methods based on visual evaluation. The 1 km 2 map was validated through a visual and categorical comparison between modelled and observed soil erosion. A procedure ...

Satellite remote sensing for water erosion assessment: a review

CATENA, Vol. 65, No. 1. (31 January 2006), pp. 2-18,


Water erosion creates negative impacts on agricultural production, infrastructure, and water quality across the world. Regional-scale water erosion assessment is important, but limited by data availability and quality. Satellite remote sensing can contribute through providing spatial data to such assessments. During the past 30 years many studies have been published that did this to a greater or lesser extent. The objective of this paper is to review methodologies applied for water erosion assessment using satellite remote sensing. First, studies on erosion ...


Predicting soil erosion and sediment yield at the basin scale: scale issues and semi-quantitative models

Earth-Science Reviews, Vol. 71, No. 1-2. (June 2005), pp. 95-125,


Basin sediment yield is the product of all sediment producing processes and sediment transport within a basin. Consequently, the prediction of basin sediment yield should take into consideration all different erosion and sediment transport processes. However, traditional physics-based, conceptual, and empirical or regression models have not been able to describe all these processes due to insufficient systems knowledge and unfeasible data requirements. Therefore, the applicability of these models at the basin scale is troublesome. This paper first illustrates the relation between ...


Timing of erosion and satellite data: a multi-resolution approach to soil erosion risk mapping

International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, Vol. 10, No. 3. (September 2008), pp. 267-281,


Erosion reduces soil productivity and causes negative downstream impacts. Erosion processes occur on areas with erodible soils and sloping terrain when high-intensity rainfall coincides with limited vegetation cover. Timing of erosion events has implications on the selection of satellite imagery, used to describe spatial patterns of protective vegetation cover. This study proposes a method for erosion risk mapping with multi-temporal and multi-resolution satellite data. The specific objectives of the study are: (1) to determine when during the year erosion risk is ...


A review of land degradation assessment methods

edited by Ólafur Arnalds


Land degradation is an increasing problem in many parts of the world. Success in fighting land degradation requires an improved understanding of its causes, impact, degree and acquaintance with climate, soil, water, land cover and socio-economic factors. Therefore, land degradation assessment is a primary goal in a decision support system for reversing degradation. Fortunately, scientists around the world started long ago to look at the problem and have developed assessment and monitoring methods. This study, aimed at exploring and reviewing existing assessment methods, used a global, regional, ...


Assessing the extent, cost and impact of land degradation at the national level: findings and lessons learned from seven pilot case studies



This study, commissioned by the Global Mechanism with support from the World Bank examined available national data on the extent, costs and current remedial actions concerning land degradation and sustainable land management in seven pilot countries. This was a desk study, but included countries where the authors had detailed long term knowledge. The results of the work are presented in seven case studies of China, Ethiopia, Mexico, Uganda, Rwanda, Chile and Indonesia; and this overview paper, which presents a synthesis of ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
