Abstract

The European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM), a process-based model simulating erosion on an event basis for fields and small catchments, was tested using data from rainfall simulation experiments on steeplands (slopes >47%) in the Three Gorges Reservoir areas. Simulations were carried out on plots representing 4 management treatments : uncultivated land, contoured-cultivated land with hedgerows and contoured-cultivated land with hedgerows + fertilizer. Results showed that, in most cases, EUROSEM predicted runoff reasonably well. This model is capable of differentiating impacts of land use changes and soil protection mesures on steeplands in this area
