Daily rainfall measurements and microclimatological theory are employed to construct a model of net rainfall, evaporation and surface runoff from north- and south-facing hillslopes in a small basin where soil erosion research was conducted. Soil erosion studies in the area suggest a connection between slope aspect and land use which is simulated from the model. The forest is first changed to low vegetation, then bare ground. The results suggest that effective land management requires land use practices which maintain a vegetation cover
