Abstract: The influence of partial deforestation in a small lowland watershed in the center of Poland on storm-event sediment yield is analysed. Rainfall-runoff model has been applied to estimate the flood hydrograph. Sediment yield during this flood is estimated from modified universal soil loss equation. Some parameters of the procedure have been established basing on field data. Computation is carried out for original and changed (after partial deforestation) condition of land use in the watershed.
