Abstract

This study addresses the capacity of rapidly and cheaply acquired mineral-magnetic data to provide detailed spatially distributed assessments of long-term cumulative soil loss from agricultural fields. Model output from a simple distributed implementation of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) and from a field-data-oriented soil magnetism-based erosion model are compared for a small Alabama (USA) farm lot. RUSLE underpredicted denudation relative to magnetism-model results over upper slopes and overpredicted it on lower slopes
