    Accelerated soil erosion occurs when anthropogenic processes modify soil, vegetation, or climatic conditions causing erosion rates at a location to exceed their natural variability. Identifying where and when accelerated erosion occurs is a critical first step toward its effective by: Rangeland measurements may also involve assessing the foraging and browsing activities of various animal species, which may also involve making a census of wildlife populations. At the broader, landscape scale, rangeland measurements can involve assessing the level of recreational use or of erosion occurring within a watershed.

The Rangeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM) was designed to fill that need. Wind erosion is a major contributing factor to rangeland soil degradation. The process is highly sensitive to variability in soils, weather, and climate, which influence wind erosivity, protective vegetation cover levels, and soil susceptibility to entrainment and transport downwind (see Box 1 for definitions of terms).

Wind erosion is also highly sensitive to patterns of land use and land Cited by: major impacts on runoff and soil erosion processes on rangeland ecosystems.

These processes and activities affect ecosystem function over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales (Williams et al., b). Nearing et al.

When the soil solution freezes, some portion of the total water content remains as liquid water. This is critical because the amount of ice formed largely determines the impact of soil freezing on the soil properties that affect.

Inthe USDA‐Agricultural Research Service (USDA‐ARS) developed the Rangeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM) V, which used physical‐based concepts from the state‐of‐the‐art technology from the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) (Flanagan & Nearing, ).

The Rangeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM) was developed as an assessment and decision support tool for resource management agencies and has been used to estimate soil erosion at national, regional, and local scales for both disturbed and undisturbed.
