ESTIMATING SHEET AND RILL EROSION The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation Version 2 (RUSLE2) is used to estimate interrill (sheet) and rill erosion caused by water. RUSLE2 is an upgrade of the text-based RUSLE DOS version 1.

It is a computer File Size: KB. The cover factor C is defi ne d as the ratio of soil from land under specified crop to the corresponding loss from tilled, bare soil.

The C is not the same as th e runoff coefficient C used in the. onstruction cost estimating is demanding work, no matter what type of construc-tion is involved. But I think estimating earthwork is the hardest of all. Why.

Soil Systems (ISSN ) - formerly Soils (ISSN ) - is an international scientific peer-reviewed open access journal on soil science published quarterly online by MDPI.

Soil Systems is a cooperating journal of the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) and affiliated to the Italian Society of Soil Science (SISS).

Open Access - free for readers, with article processing. The Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) was developed in the s and s to predict the long-term average annual soil loss from sheet and rill erosion on field-sized areas as an aid to making.

Introduction. Soil loss by runoff is a severe ecological problem occupying 56% of the world wide area. Soil loss is accelerated by human-induced soil degradation (Bai, Dent, Olsson, & Schaepman, ).There are varieties of soil erosion, and rill and inter-rill erosion are the recurrent types of water erosion, involving detachment, transport, and accumulation of soil particles to a new Cited by: The wind erosion equation is used to predict soil loss by wind forces from specific field areas.

The equation is: E = f (IKCLV) where: E = the predicted average annual soil loss in tons per acre per year. f = “a function of” symbol. I = the soil erodibility Size: 36KB. SOIL WATER STORAGE CAPACITY AND AVAILABLE SOIL MOISTURE SOIL WATER STORAGE For irrigation the soil water storage (SWS) capacity is defined as the total amount of water that is stored in the soil within the plant’s root zone.

The soil texture and the crop rooting depth determine this. A deeper rooting depth means there is a larger volume of waterFile Size: KB. C-Factor: the land-cover management factor is a ratio comparing the soil loss from a specific type of vegetation cover.

It is used to determine the effectiveness a crop/vegetation management system has on preventing soil loss. In this project the land-cover data of shapefile came. Maintaining crop residues on soil surfaces not only protects the soils from splash erosion, but also increases infiltration rates (Unger and Vigil, ) and reduces surface runoff (Greenland, ), resulting in less soil loss.

In their experimental field, Campbell et al. () found that crop residues decrease soil loss by around 12%.Cited by: TABLEOFCONTENTS IllinoisErosionControlProgram 1 TheUniversalSoilLossEquation(USEE) 1 Rainfall(R)Factor 2 SoilErodibility(K)Factor 2 SlopeLengthandSteepness(LS)Factor 3 CroppingandManagement(C)Factor 3 ConservationPractices(P)Factor 5 UsingtheUSEE 6 WorkingthroughSomeExamples 6 SolvingtheUSEEforC 7 GettingHelp 7 Tables.

cPercentage of soil surface covered by plant residue mulch after crop seeding. The difference between spring residue and that on the surface after crop seeding is reflected in the soil loss ratios as residues mixed with the topsoil.

dThe soil loss ratios assume that the indicated crop sequence and practices are followed consistently. The soil loss equation presented in this hand- book has become known (57);as the Universal Soil Loss tionEquation (USLE).

Regardless of whether the designation is fully accurate, the name does dis- tinguish this equation from the regionally based soil loss equations. The USLE was developed (5,at the National Runoff and Soil Loss Data Center estab.

Soil Compaction Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil.

In construction, this is a significant part of the building process. If performed improperly, settlement of the soil could occur and result in unnecessary maintenance costs File Size: 2MB. Soil erosion is one of the most important environmental problems, and it remains as a major threat to the land use of hilly regions of Tripura.

The present study aims at estimating potential and actual soil loss (th-1y-1) as well as to indentify the major erosion prone sub-watersheds in the study area. Average annual soil loss has been estimated by multiplying five parameters, i.e.: R (the.

However, for field applications, a reliable and simple method is required. The Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) is an empirical procedure developed by Wischmeier and Smith in from statistical analysis of erosion data from a large number of plot studies under different by: Since only the lowest bidder will be the winner of the contract in most bidding contests, any effort devoted to cost estimating is a loss to the contractor who is not a successful bidder.

Consequently, the contractor may put in the least amount of possible effort for making a cost estimate if it believes that its chance of success is not high. Pricing in many of the books is local, maybe regional. Several companies that publish estimating books will send a “modification factor” quarterly to correct their prices for your local area.

Slash-and-burn and other unsustainable methods of subsistence farming are practiced in some lesser developed areas. A sequel to the deforestation is typically large scale erosion.

The ArcGIS software has become a prominent tool for the USLE (Equation (1)) modeling. This approach has been used successfully in various studies to assess soil loss and its planning management [8,38,39,40,41,42,43,44].Using the nearest-neighbor method, all the datasets utilized in this study were resampled to the same spatial resolution of 30 × 30 m and reprojected to the World Geodetic Cited by: Soil Loss Estimation on a Local Scale for Soil Conservation Planning Introduction Soil erosion by water leads to soil loss in crop fields.

The revised universal soil loss equation (RUSLE) is an erosion model predicting longtime average annual soil loss (A) resulting from raindrop splash and runoff from specific field slopes in specified cropping and management systems and from rangeland.

Widespread use has substantiated the RUSLE's usefulness and validity. RUSLE retains the six factors of Agriculture handbook, to calculate A. soil loss information for erosion control is based on the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE).

RUSLE, previously the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE), was developed to estimate average annual soil loss from agricultural fields. The equation reliably predicts soil loss on an annual basis, but there is a need to be able to accuratelyFile Size: 3MB.

A typical septic drainfield trench is 18 to 30 inches in depth, with a maximum soil cover over the disposal field of 36"; or per the USDA, 2 feet to 5 feet in depth. At REFERENCES we cite these sources. In some climates such as northern Minnesota we have observed drainfield trenches placed much deeper - unfortunately meaning that while effluent.

Thermal inertia is a parameter that characterizes a property of soil that is defined as the square root of the product of the volumetric heat capacity and thermal conductivity. Both properties increase as soil moisture increases. Therefore, soil moisture can be inversely determined using thermal inertia if a relationship between the parameters is obtained in : Dai Matsushima.

Using the above formula (1), Dashiell et al.

The soil loss ratio for corn in a no-till sod-based system is given in Agriculture Handbook No. as Considerable efforts in research and field programs have thus been directed at management practices that affect the C factor.The N budget estimate of soil C loss is sensitive to NUE values used in the model (Fig 3).

Lower values of NUE correspond to higher rates of soil C loss because an assumption of lower N uptake implies more N, and thus SOM, was mineralized relative to plant N uptake. In general, fertilizer NUE ranges between 30 to 70% in rice systems [40, 41, 42, 53Cited by: 7.RUSLE2 has the ability to describe these different field practices in much more detail than is possible with the USLE's old C factor.

RUSLE2 also has the capability of estimating the soil saving benefits of practices such as vegetated filter strips, buffers and silt fences.
