Modelling Soil Erosion Using the Universal Soil Loss Equation and a Geographic Information System: The Kinnarasani River Watershed, Andhra Pradesh, India [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Soil erosion is a global problem, with grave consequences for the environment, human society and the economy. It is possible to identify areas with a high risk of soil erosion using computer models and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This study models soil erosion on the Kinnarasani river's watershed, in semi arid tropical India. It uses the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and establishes the different parameters using mostly freely accessible data. The results are verified visually in the field. Perspectives for research and different types of implementation projects are cited at the end of the study.
