Abstract

The authors present a model of soil erosion for application in grid-cell representations of catchments. The model includes submodels for detachment by raindrop impact, detachment by flow and transport capacity of flow to determine the discharge of sediment from each grid cell. Following an examination of the literature, the authors have used the following equation to compute Di, the amount of material detached by raindrop impact per unit area
