This study aims to appraise the risk of soil erosion caused by water along the Bohai Sea region during the rainy season. A new method, namely the RUSLE-IDM coupled model, which embeds the IDM (Information Diffusion Model) into the RUSLE(Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation)model, is applied to reveal soil erosion risk in different scenarios, with rainfall exceeding the probability of 0.1 and 0.02 respectively. It is showed that : 1) soil erosion caused by water is serious from July to September, but the greatest amount of attention should be paid to the prevention of soil erosion in July; 2) vegetation coverage and soil erosion control practices are controllable and important factors for the future soil conservation in this area
