Abstract

This paper examines the changes from 1955 to 2002 in soil erosion and deposition due to changes in land-use patterns in the semi-arid territory of Craco, which is characterised by landsliding and badland erosion. This analysis integrates the Unit Stream Power Erosion Deposition (USPED) model with a geographic information system (GIS) to quantify erosion risk and predict deposition patterns. Soil data, land use inventory, digital elevation data and climatic atlases were used as resource data sets to generate USPED factor values. Discussion of the results
