ABSTRACT AN erosion equation is derived from the continuity equation for sediment transport and other equa-tions describing rill and interrill erosion. The resulting equation is a useful model for explaining the behavior of the erosion process. The equation might serve as the basis for an operational equation for estimating soil loss for specific storms.
