Digital Terrain Modeling and Distributed Soil Erosion Simulation/Measurement for Minimizing Environmental Impacts of Military Training (CS-752)

Pagination or Media Count:
In recognition of the negative repercussions that soil erosion and sediment deposition can have on military preparedness and the environment, the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program SERDP funded a research effort between Fiscal Years 1993 and 1998 to develop geographic information system GIS tools and methods to enhance the accuracy, spatial prediction and visual representation of erosion and deposition on military lands. Because of the variability in the quality and availability of data to support erosiondeposition modeling efforts, the project sought to enhance both relatively simple empirical models and more data-intensive process-based models. In addition, the project addressed the demands for long-term average annual estimates of erosiondeposition and single event-based predictions.
