The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation [chapter]

K.G. Renard
Soil Erosion Research Methods  
The Universal Soil Loss Equation has been revised to more accurately estimate soil loss from both crop and rangeland areas. The revision includes data .not available at the time Agriculture Handbook 537 was completed in 1978. All factors R, K, LS, C and P have received attention. R-values for the western United States were developed from hourly precipitation data. A time-variant K factor was included. New length and steepness (LS) factor relationships were developed. C factors are now computed
more » ... s are now computed by a subfactor approach, and P factors were developed using the CREAMS model. The model has been computerized for use on personal computers with a DOS operating system.
