The AA. calculated rainfall erosivity for future climates using new temperature threshold in the Southern Rockies Ecoregion (SRE). They used RUSLE to calculate soil loss for 16 future climate and wildfire scenarios and compared future soil loss to results from historic runs. Based on 100 simulations of future wildfire applied to RUSLE for each global circuation model scenario combination, they found that soil loss will likely increase above historic levels but that considerable uncertainty remains about the amount of increase
