The AA. aim to analyse the potential contribution of tillage erosion to landscape development using LEM LAPSUS. The model is calibrated separately for a water erosion process (i) without tillage and (ii) with tillage. The model is applied to the Torrealvilla case study catchment, SE Spain. It was able to simulate alternating sequences of incision and aggradation, that are important on longer (millennial) timescales. Results presented here indicate that water erosion is the most important process, not tillage erosion. A scale effect is highlighted : when assessing only hillslopes, tillage is the main erosional process; when assessing the entire catchment, water erosion appears to be the major process
