Environmental Modeling with Raster

Environmental Modeling with Raster

In this course we will calculate the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) using Raster Modeling in QGIS

Course Overview

Environmental Modeling with Rasters

In this course we will calculate the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) using Raster Modeling in QGIS. RUSLE is an empirical equation used to compute average soil loss in agricultural fields and undeveloped landscapes. QGIS provides powerful tools to generate the variables required to calculate RUSLE.

Experience Level:

Advanced

Skills Covered:

  • Create a depressionless DEM
  • Calculate aspect
  • Calculate catchment area (flow accumulation)
  • Convert vector to raster

Lessons1 hr 30 min

  • Raster Modeling
  • Course Survey
