Soil Erosion Inventory in part of Bhogabati Watershed using Rs Gis following USLE

The study area is part of Bhogabati watershed which is located in Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, India. The area is characterized by warm, sub-humid tropical climate and the average annual rainfall is 1215 mm. The methodology adopted in this study for soil erosion modeling is depicted in Figure 5 (ASD,

2001). Soil and Land Use/Land Cover maps were prepared by analysis of IRS-1D : LISS III satellite data. Topographic factor (LS) was derived from DEM generated by GIS analysis. Various USLE factors and model derived erosional soil loss of the watershed are presented in Figure 6.
