Distributed evaluation of the contribution of soil erosion to the sediment yield from a watershed

Auteurs :
PILOTTI, M.
BACCHI, B.

Description :
Due to the highly episodic nature of sediment supply and transport in many environments and to the extreme complexity of the processes involved, the evaluation of the sediment load in a river is still highly uncertain. The AA. propose a distributed application of the widely used USLE formula. The formula is automatically applied along drainage networks derived from a digital elevation model and properly modified to take into account the presence of deposition zones in the watershed.
