RUSLE GIS Model

Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE)

  • RUSLE computes the average annual erosion from field slopes in tons/acre/year (Renard, 1997)
  • A = R*K*(LS)*C*P
  • A = Computed Average Annual Soil Loss
  • R = Rainfall-Runoff Erosivity factor
  • K = Soil Erodibility Factor
  • L = Slope Length Factor
  • S = Slope Steepness Factor
  • C = Land Cover-Management Factor
  • P = Conservation Practice

    A = R x K x LS x C x P
