This study aimed to evaluate and to modify remotely-sensed DEMs for an improved quantification of initial sediment mass changes in an artificially-created catchment. DEMs were constructed from photogrammetry-based, airborne (ALS) and ground-based laser scanning (TLS) data. Regions of differing morphological characteristics and vegetation cover were delineated. Three-dimensional (3D) models of volume change were established and mass change was derived from these models. DEMs were modified region-by-region for rill, interrill and alluvial areas, based on logical and hydro-geomorphological principles. Additional DEMs were constructed by combining multi-source, modified data. Models were evaluated by comparison with d-GPS reference data and by considering sediment budget plausibility. Comprehensive evaluation showed that DEM usability depends on a relation between the technique used to obtain elevation data, surface morphology and vegetation cover characteristics
