HEL
Highly Erodible Land Model
HEL identifies land that is highly erodible. It identifies steep land that is at risk of mass movement. It identified land that should be under... Read More The Highly Erodible Land (HEL) system identifies land highly susceptible to mass-movement erosion using a combination of the erosion terrains derived from the NZLRI database,...

NZeem®
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...

SSYE
Suspended Sediment Yield Estimator
A New Zealand national GIS ‘layer’ to enable reconnaissance-scale estimation of suspended-sediment yields from New Zealand’s rivers and streams. It has been developed by NIWA... Read More SSYE uses a raster-based GIS layer of specific suspended-sediment yield (SSY, t/km2/y) from New Zealand’s rivers and streams has been generated based on gauged sediment...
