Description :
Soil erosion can cause considerable effect on global natural resources and eco-environment. In this paper, the CENTURY model has been used to simulate soil erosion in Xilin Gol Gassland of Inner Mongolia. The results showed before the 1960s, the soil erosion amount was over 2 kg/m2.a in grassland ecosystem in the study area because no tree has been planted. But after the 1960s, the soil erosion was only 0.3 kg/m2.a in forest ecosystem. So afforestation has exerted notable effect on decreasing soil erosion amount in Xilin Gol Grassland.
