LS-factor (Slope Length and Steepness factor) for the EU

Collection: ESDAC : European Soil Data Centre 

Description

This dataset (GIS maps) (2015) represents the "Slope Length and Steepness factor" (LS-factor), one of the six 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; maps at resolutions of 25m (per country) and 100m (Europe-wide).
