Keywords

  • Adaptations to LISEM, dealing with Loess Plateau characteristics-steep slopes, high sediment concentrations and gullies
  • Evaluating effects of soil and water management-and land use change on Loess Plateau of China using LISEM
  • Limitations of LISEM, and pixel-based approach in LISEM-consequences, for calculation process
  • LISEM (Limburg Soil Erosion Model) model-chosen for this exercise, simulating erosion on Loess Plateau
  • LISEM, evaluating effects of different land use scenarios
  • LISEM, for province of Limburg, The Netherlands-previously, calibrated and validated for catchments in Loess region of northwestern Europe
