Soil Erosion

    The 2010 and 2030 data are not directly comparable. The 2010 data are based on actual rainfall measurements and consider two unusually wet years within the five-year average. The 2030 data are based on derived long-term model averages. While the 2030 data are directly comparable with each other as they are all from the same source, they can't be so easily related to the 2010 data, taken from a different source.

Red areas are those of erosion greater than 6.77 tons/Ha (Upper 95th percentile based on 2010 Baseline):
