Abstract

This paper asks whether it is safe to utilise two widely-used models, the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and the Soil Loss Estimation Model for Southern Africa (SLEMSA), to conditions for which they were not designed : semi-arid SE Spain. Comparing the actual soil loss in the Fortuna-Abanilla Basin with what would be predicted by USLE and SLEMSA indicated that neither model can completely be applied with current knowledge of equation factor values
