An analysis of the statistical distribution of event soil loss was carried out using the data collected in the period 1999–2008 at the microplots and plots of the Sparacia experimental area (Sicily, Italy). In particular, the theoretical probability distribution reproducing the empirical frequency distribution of measured soil loss was established. An estimating criterion of the soil loss of a given return period was then developed. Finally, the frequency distributions of soil erosion data collected at different spatial scales (plot, basin) were compared
