Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE)

The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE), based extensively on the USLE model and its data, offers several major improvements to USLE users. Each factor value has been updated, expanded, and improved. 


R factor


K factor


LS factor


C factor


P factor


Like USLE, RUSLE is applicable to sheet and rill detachment only. It does not estimate erosion in channels or compute deposition.
