The European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM): A dynamic approach for predicting sediment transport from fields and small catchments.
The European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM) is a dynamic distributed model, able to simulate sediment transport, erosion and deposition over the land surface by rill and interill processes in single… Expand
Rates and spatial variations of soil erosion in Europe: A study based on erosion plot data
An extensive database of short to medium-term erosion rates as measured on erosion plots in Europe under natural rainfall was compiled from the literature. Statistical analysis confirmed the dominant… Expand
The impact of agricultural soil erosion on biogeochemical cycling
Soils are the main terrestrial reservoir of nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, and of organic carbon. Synthesizing earlier studies, we find that the mobilization and deposition of… Expand
The European soil erosion model (EUROSEM): documentation and user guide.
Soil management in relation to sustainable agriculture and ecosystem services
Requirements for research, practices and policies affecting soil management in relation to global food security are reviewed. Managing soil organic carbon (C) is central because soil organic matter… Expand

Most fi eld erosion studies in agricultural areas provide little information on the probable errors involved. Here, for the fi rst time, we compare the accuracy, time and cost of conventional and new… Expand
Overland flow transport of pathogens from agricultural land receiving faecal wastes
Considerable investment has been made in recent years in improvements to the microbiological quality of urban wastewater discharges to surface waters, particularly in coastal towns, with the aim of… Expand
Dynamic, Distributed Simulation of Watershed Erosion - the Kineros2 and Eurosem Models.
Two models, KINEROS2 and EUROSEM, that simulate hydrologic event erosion on small catchments as a distributed, dynamic convective transport process are described briefly. Each employs a numerical… Expand
The significance of soils and soil science towards realization of the United Nations sustainable development goals
In this forum paper we discuss how soil scientists can help to reach the recently adopted UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the most effective manner. Soil science, as a land-related… Expand
The selective removal of phosphorus from soil: is event size important?
Data from the Woburn Erosion Reference Experiment (Bedfordshire, UK) were used to test the hypothesis that losses of phosphorus (P) in small erosion events are as great as those in infrequent large… Expand
