Short summary
Climate change will likely increase soil erosion in many locations worldwide. This increase in erosion will have large-scale impacts, such as the siltation of reservoirs. We developed a new soil erosion model to evaluate these impacts, which has an advantage over existing models in that it includes most relevant processes: rainfall–runoff generation, vegetation development, and soil erosion and deposition. The model is suited to perform scenario studies on climate change and land management.
