The Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) is regarded as one of a new generation of soil erosion models as it is process based and predicts soil erosion at spatial and temporal scales. In addition, WEPP is applicable for hillslopes as well as small watersheds and estimates soil erosion in hourly, monthly or annual timestamps from single storm. Keywords. Sprinkler irrigation, Infiltration, Runoff Erosion, WEPP. T he USDA–ARS Water Erosion Prediction Project (Flanagan and Nearing, ; Flanagan and Livingston, ) model was developed to predict runoff and erosion primarily on rain–fed cropland and rangeland. Laflen et al. () and Nearing et al. () describe the model and. The Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model, originally developed for hillslope and small watershed applications, simulates complex interactive processes influencing erosion. Recent incorporations to the model have improved the subsurface hydrology components for forest applications. This book is a collection of innovative up-to-date perspectives on key aspects of water resources planning, development, and management of importance to both professional practitioners and researchers. Authors with outstanding expertise address a broad range of topics that include planning strategies, water quality modeling and monitoring, erosion prediction, freshwater inflows to estuaries Cited by: 1.

I call the children in the corner so I can read the book Erosion by Koontz. The book mostly is devoted to water erosion. It is a great book which teaches the children about erosion at their level. But before I start reading the book, I give the children a lollipop without any further : Jeri Faber.

soil erosion as influenced by human activity. Most soil erosion models consider only soil erosion by water, however a few aim to predict wind erosion. D.K. McCool, J.D. Williams, in Encyclopedia of Ecology, Soil erosion by water is the wearing away of the earth’s surface by the force of water and gravity, and consists of soil particle dislodgement, entrainment, transport, and deposition.

the prediction of soil loss and sediment delivery. The importance of estimating erosion and sediment delivery has long been recognized to minimize pollution by sediments and the chemicals carried by soil particles.

The visual effects of erosion include rills and gullies along with sediment blockages found in culverts or drainage Size: 1MB.

When the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) computer model was used to simulate the effect of terraces, grassed waterways, and buffer strips, the sediment lost with the combination of chisel plowing, terraces, and grassed waterways was still two and a half times greater than with no-till by itself.

The Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) offers the opportunity to significantly improve erosion predictive technology for rangelands. The WEPP technology has improved rangeland predictive technology through greater model complexity; however, much of the improvement in simulation accuracy is lost in techniques used to estimate model parameters.
