Soil hydraulic functions for run-off simulation were collected in catchment areas in a loess region. Each soil horizon was sampled and water retention and hydraulic conductivity characteristics were determined. Run-off generation during standard rain events was quantified by simulation. Based on the simulation outcome, soil horizons were merged. The soil physical composition was mapped with these soil physical building blocks. The maps can be used as input for soil and water erosion models on catchment scale. Comparison of potential run-off figures with measured data showed that the soil physical schematization was appropriate.
