Rainstorm analysis and rainfall erosivity of a seasonal tropical region with a strong cyclonic influence in the Pacific Coast of Mexico.
Data inputs to this equation include rainfall erosivity, soil erodability, slope length gradient factor, crop length factor (specific coefficients accounting for how various crops impact sediment delivery) and support practice factor (impact of alternative conservation practices).
4) Thus, not only herbicide application but also soil cultivation can increase carbon loss from the soil, in addition to increasing its erosivity.
where; A = average of land erosion(t/ha/year), R = rain erosivity factor, K = soil erodibility factor, LS = topographic factor (length of slope and degree of slope), C = cropping-management or land use factor, dan P = conservation practice factor
The most important climatic variable in soil erosion processes is rainfall erosivity, which is related to rainfall amount and rainfall intensity [14,15].
Despite the simplicity of the (R)USLE model, its application is still limited in many regions because of the difficulty in computing the rainfall erosivity factor (R-factor).
2001) evaluated the effects of slope gradient, slope length, slope aspect, rainfall erosivity and ground cover density on erosion on the roadcuts in Idaho, USA.
The equation components include: potential average annual soil loss in tons per acre per year (A); rainfall erosivity factor (R); the soil erodibility factor (K); the lengthslope factor (LS); and crop management factors (C and P) that were provided by the Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD).
