Abstract: New generation water erosion prediction technology is being developed by the USDA Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP). The new technology is expected to replace the Universal Soil Loss Equation as the primary erosion prediction tool used by action agencies. The User Requirements, model structure, and experimental program for WEPP are described.
