    Abstract

    The Limburg Soil Erosion Model (LISEM) is a physically based model incorporated in a raster geographical information system. This incorporation facilitates easy application in larger catchments, improves the user-friendliness by avoiding conversion routines and allows the use of remotely sensed data. Processes incorporated in this model are rainfall, interception, surface storage in microdepressions, infiltration and vertical movement of water in the soil, overland flow, channel flow, detachment by rainfall and through-fall, detachment by overland flow and transport capacity of the flow. Special attention has been paid to the influence of tractor wheeling, small roads and surface sealing.
