Collection: ESDAC : European Soil Data Centre 

Description

Dataset (GIS map) (2015) and associated products for the "Rainfall erosivity" (R-factor), one of the input layers when calculating the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) model, which is the most frequently used model for soil erosion risk estimation; for EU28+Switzerland; R-factor map at resolutions of 500m. Users can downloads Raw data, Baseline map (2010), Monthly erosivity, Future projections (2050), Past erosivity (1961-2000).
