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.
