This paper incorporates the use of remotely sensed data, terrain analysis and a multi-criteria mechanism for evaluating risks of soil loss, water ponding, and sediment deposition in a mid-size agricultural Mediterranean catchment, under 80 years of intensive cultivation : the Harod catchment located in Northern Israel. The research uses simulations to study the effect of topographic attributes, soil characteristics, vegetation cover, rainfall intensity and human activities (tillage direction) on the 3 risks in the studied area.
