CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Application of the WEPP model to hillslopes and watersheds in the USA.

The Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) was initiated in 1985, and currently provides modelling capabilities to assess spatial and temporal soil loss, the impacts of various types of land management and the implementation of soil conservation practices on runoff, erosion and sediment delivery...

Cover for Application of the WEPP model to some Austrian watersheds.

This study aims to evaluate the performance of the hillslope and watershed version of the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model by comparing measured with simulated amounts of runoff and soil loss/sediment yield. The predictive capability was investigated for two spatial scales: for natural ...

Cover for Runoff and predicting erosion on hillslopes within catchments.

This chapter focuses on the refinement of models to improve erosion prediction on hillslopes within catchments. A modified version of the Universal Soil Loss Equation is presented to include runoff as a factor in accounting for event erosivity.

Cover for Runoff and erosion modelling by WEPP in an experimental Mediterranean watershed.

This paper analyses the results of the application of the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model to a small watershed in Sicily, Italy, in order to draw conclusions on model implementation and performance in the experimental conditions studied, and to compare the WEPP model with other...

Cover for Land use, sediment delivery and sediment yield in England and Wales.

This paper describes the transfer by water of sediment from the land into watercourses in England and Wales. The sediment yields in catchments and how those may have changed in the recent past and the reasons behind those changes are discussed. The origin of sediment from lowland arable landscapes...

Cover for Identifying soil erosion hotspots in the Manupali River Watershed.

This chapter discusses the use of a geographical information systems-assisted soil erosion model, Predicting Catchment Runoff and Soil Erosion for Sustainability, to identify and map erosion locations within the Manupali River Watershed located in the Philippines that are particularly susceptible...

Cover for Traditional silvoarable systems and their evolution in Greece.

Traditional silvoarable systems occur in several parts of Greece and play an important role in the local economy. They also play a very important ecological role because they prevent soil erosion and surface runoff. Several combinations of trees and crops were identified in a survey conducted...

Cover for Managing movements of water, solutes and soil: from plot to landscape scale.

This paper focuses on the biophysical aspects of lateral water movement and its consequences for the movement of solutes and soil. Different types and arrangements of land use affecting these types of lateral flow are considered. The effects of spatial variation, belts of trees, short rotations,...

Cover for Potential effects of environmental change on landslide hazards in forest environments.

The interactive roles of the natural factors that contribute to landslide initiation and potential climate changes are complex. Additional complexity is added when changing forest land uses are considered. Thus, while it is impossible to ascertain specific patterns of landslide response to possible ...
