New Zealand Empirical Erosion Model
NZeem® is an empirical model that predicts mean annual sediment yield from a given catchment, based on annual rainfall, type of terrain and percentage of... Read More NZeem® partitions the New Zealand landscape according to the factors controlling erosion: rock type, land form (especially slope angle), rainfall and land cover. The erosion...
