Derivation of vegetative variables from a landsat TM image for modelling soil erosion

, : Derivation of vegetative variables from a landsat TM image for modelling soil erosion. Earth Surface Processes and Landforms 19(2): 165-178

The (semi) natural vegetation was described at 33 field plots, in southern France, using 4 quantitative methods (Fosberg's structural classification system, the cover and management factor of the Universal Soil Loss Equation, leaf area index, total percentage cover).

The Saxonian loess belt is one of the areas in Germany most endangered by water erosion.

After brief intense rain of 11.1 mm, with maximum intensity of 8.0 mm per 10 min. good correlations were found between crop canopy and erosion, crop canopy and rate of control of splash, run-off, and rainfall interception.

In the management of natural resources, multiple variables correlated with each other usually need to be mapped jointly. However, joint mapping and spatial uncertainty analyses are very difficult mainly because of interactions among variables and...

Water is a major limiting factor in arid and semi-arid agriculture. In the Sahelian zone of Africa, it is not always the limited amount of annual rainfall that constrains crop production, but rather the proportion of rainfall that enters the root...
