G2 soil erosion model data

G2 generic model for soil erosion applied to 5 application areas (Crete island,Cyprus, Ishmi-Erzeni watershed, Korce, Strymonas/Struma); available layers: Soil erosion (Total & Monthly) plus Rainfall erosivity (Total & Monthly), vegetation retention (Total & Monthly), soil erodibility, topographic influence and slope intercept.

G2 model is a new generic model for erosion, resulted from the cooperation of European Commission/Joint Research Centre and the Lab of Forest Management and Remote Sensing of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in the framework of geoland2 project. G2 estimates soil loss (in t/ha) from sheet and interril erosion caused by splash and runoff, on a month-step basis and on a landscape scale.

Soil erosion layers (Total & Monthly) plus Rainfall erosivity (Total & Monthly), vegetation retention (Total & Monthly), soil erodibility, topographic influence and slope intercept are available for the three (5) application areas:

  • Cyprus: 9251 Km2 - pixel size: 100m including sediment module
  • Crete island: 8,336 Km2 (Greece) - Pixel size: 300m, temporal coverage: 2011-2012.
  • Ishmi-Erzeni watershed : 2,200 Km2 (Albania) - Pixel size: 300m, temporal coverage: 2011-2012.
  • Korce Region: 1690 Km2 (Albania) - Pixel size: 30m
  • Strymonas/Struma Catchment : 14,500 Km2 (Greece / Bulgaria) - Pixel size: 300m, temporal coverage: 2003-2006.
