European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM)
Entry ID: EUROSEM
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM) is the result of European Commission
funded research involving scientists from Europe and the USA. The model
simulates erosion on an event basis for fields and small catchments. It uses
physical descriptions to describe the process of soil erosion and is fully
dynamic.
