Abstract

Flooding and erosion are major hazards in semi-arid areas. As a result of climate and/or land use changes these hazards could increase. Vulnerable areas include the Mediterranean region of southern Europe. In this paper the selection of characteristics and processes in the vegetation component of the model is discussed. The effects of vegetation upon flow, erosion and deposition processes and the feedback of flow, sediment and moisture on vegetation are identified. The conceptualisation of the model is outlined then the problems and strategies for parameterisation are indicated
