An examination is carried out of the application of three soil erosion models, USLE/RUSLE, SLEMSA and the Morgan, Morgan and Finney method, to the Simeto catchment in Sicily, and of the differences in the results using the three models. The models...

Soil erosion and water scarcity are the main concerns in semiarid Central Mexico, where population pressure on land is very intense. There is a lack of data on soil erosion measurements to establish a soil and water management plan in the area, so...

The lack of data in developing countries makes it hard to estimate the effects of soil erosion on yields except by models. The economic effects are calculated in three stages, first by using SLEMSA 9 (Soil Loss Estimator for Southern Africa) combi...
