Estimation of soil erosion risk of the Euphrates river watershed using RUSLE model, remote sensing and GIS techniques
The average annual soil erosion is the main problem of natural water resources and the agriculture, the most dominant factor that effect on the soil erosion is water. The aim of this study was estimated the average annual soil erosion by using RUSLE model and the ArcGIS software of the Euphrates river watershed, this model was based on five factors for calculation soil erosion map of the watershed. The rainfall-runoff erosivity (R) factor map was computed for precipitation data that content from thirty-one stations scattered within and outside the watershed area to assist in the interpolation ...
