Abstract: In this paper, techniques for mainframe to micro conversion are discussed. As a practical case, an erosion simulation model was used. The created software predicts distribution of erosion and deposition on upland areas. It can delineate the pattern of flow and sediment movement. It also estimates the total soil loss from a watershed. This information could be very important in selecting the best management practice in controlling soil erosion and non-point source pollution.
