Pan European Soil Erosion Risk Assessment - PESERA Print

The PESERA model offers a state of the art erosion risk assessment at a European scale (Kirkby et al, 2000). Erosion predictions from the PESERA model are reliant on estimating a stabilised vegetation cover and estimating the generation of overland runoff on a cell by cell basis. The model's robustness and flexibility has been demonstrated through its performance at different resolutions and across different agro-ecological zones.
