Soil Erosion Analysis Using the USLE Formula in Jasper County

The purpose of this research was to implement the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) formula on a test area so to identify its feasibility strictly  by means of remote analysis. The test area was Jasper County, Iowa, a location chosen largely for its data availability and its high level of agricultural land. The reference data was gathered from United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Soil Survey Geographic Database (SSURGO), the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium (MRLC), and WorldClim.
