Soil erosion is significantly increased and accelerated by unsustainable agricultural activities, resulting in one of the major threats to soil health and water quality worldwide. Quantifying soil erosion under different conservation practices is important for watershed management and a framework that can capture the spatio-temporal dynamics of soil erosion by water is required. In this paper, a modeling framework that coupled physically based models, Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) and…

Improving and calibrating channel erosion simulation in the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model.
TLDR
The WEPP_CE model with temporally varying channel erodibility and critical shear stress values demonstrated improved representation of the physical processes in channel soil detachment, which can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of soil conservation practices on hydrology and erosion in further research.
Sediment fate and transport: Influence of sediment source and rainfall
Abstract The capability of hydrologic models to spatially simulate the changes in hydrologic processes, like precipitation, is an important consideration in capturing the impacts of these processes
Aridity index, soil erosion and climate drive no-till ecosystem services trade-off in Mediterranean arable land
Abstract Despite the relevant literature on the advantages of no-till (NT) management, the world area under NT is only 10% of the arable land, probably due to several limiting factors as climate,
