Digging Deeper into Soil Erosion: Erosion Models


Water erosion

Water erosion (runoff only)

Also known as 'hillslope hydrology' models. Only a selection is given here.

Water erosion (long term)

This class of models is also known as 'landscape evolution models' (among other names). Such models often consider other landscape-forming processes in addition to erosion, such as mass movements and fluvial (river) erosion. However, their hillslope erosion component usually considers only soil erosion by water. Here is a selection.
