Soil erosion potential due to water based on the RUSLE soil loss equation. These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "as is" and may contain errors or omissions.

These data may not have the accuracy, resolution, completeness, timeliness, or other characteristics appropriate for applications that potential users of the data may contemplate.

Derived from 1:250,000-scale USGS HUC 8 boundaries, this dataset represents the soil erodibility for the western USA. A weighted average was created for each HUC 8 watershed using approximate EMAP physical habitat substrate criteria. The values are based on the Universal Soil Loss Equation: A =R x K x LS x C x P, where A = potential long term average annual soil loss in tons per acre per year, R = rainfall and runoff factor by geographic location, K = soil erodibility factor, LS = slope length-gradient factor, crop/vegetation and management factor, and P = support practice factor. This dataset contains attribute fields with values for each factor.
