ABSTRACT- One of the big problems today human societies are faced with is the problem of soil erosion. In this study, the "MPSIAC model" was used to estimate sediment yield and provide sediment yield map in Cachoyeh watershed. The MPSIAC method incorporates nine environmental factors that contribute to sediment yield of the watershed. These factors are: surface geology, soil, climate, runoff, topography, ground cover, land use, channel and surface erosion. ArcGIS 10.2 software was used to prepare the map of each factor and analyze them to create the sediment yield map and erosion map. According to the results based on MPSIAC model, 94.2 % (476.1km2) of study area was classified in the slight sedimentation and 29.2 % (147.5 km2) of it was classified in the moderate erosion classes. The total sediment yield of basin was calculated as 1236.5 (m3 km−2 year−1) and the total of erosion was calculated as 5091.6 (m3 km−2 year−1). The sensitivity analysis of parameters of MPSIAC model showed that the most sensitive parameters of the model based on their importance were: channel erosion, land cover and geology with Pearson correlation of 0.75 to 0.36. Land use factor was found to have a lower effect than the output model.

Estimation of soil erosion and sediment yield using GIS

A Geographical Information System (GIS) based method is proposed and demonstrated for the identification of sediment source areas and the prediction of storm sediment yield from catchments. Data from the Nagwa and Karso catchments in Bihar (India) have been used. The Integrated Land and Water Information System (ILWIS) GIS package has been used for carrying out geographic analyses. An Earth Res...

Modelling monthly soil losses and sediment yields in Cyprus

The aim of this study was to map soil erosion on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The G2 model, an empirical model for month-time step erosion assessments, was used. Soil losses in Cyprus were mapped at a 100 m cell size, while sediment yields at a sub-basin scale of 0.62 km2 mean size. The results indicated a mean annual erosion rate of 11.75 t ha−1 y−1, with October and November being the ...
