The AA. compare the SIBERIA and CAESAR erosion models for their ability to predict sediment transport in a small catchment in western Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, selected as it is a good analogue for the pre-mined Ranger site. CAESAR simulates individual events with a greater emphasis on fluvial processes whereas SIBERIA averages erosion rates across annual time scales. The simulation results are compared with each other and with field-determined values of soil erosion determined for the catchment. The merits of each model, their formulation and ease of application are also discussed.
