Abstract : Water and wind induced soil erosion has adverse economic and environmental impacts. Large area in Asia-Pacific region is affected by soil erosion. This paper discusses various satellite remote sensing and GIS based modelling approaches for soil erosion hazard assessment such as empirical, semi-empirical and process based. Few case examples of soil erosion modelling by integrated use of remote sensing and GIS are included in this article.
