Description :
This paper presents an evaluation of the European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM) using plot data from 2 different catchments, Embori and Mukogodo, in Kenya, aimed at determining the applicability of the model to the prevailing topography, soils, climate and land use conditions. Particular attention is given to the ability of the model to deal with different crop and vegetation covers.
