  • The paper assessed the impact of land use land cover (LULC) change on soil erosion status in Phewa Lake watershed of Nepal using a geographic information system-based soil erosion modeling approach with LULC change detection to quantify the influence of changing LULC on erosion risk. Four LULC maps were generated for a 15-year period (1995 through 2010) at 5-year intervals to assess LULC change and to predict the projected (2015 and 2020) LULC scenario.
