Erosion risk map of the agriculturally productive areas of Switzerland in a 2x2-metre grid on the basis of the DTM-AV. The map covers only the valley and hill regions. It shows the potential qualitative erosion risk on permanent arable land. The overall rating is assigned to one of three risk levels (no risk, risk, high risk), without taking into consideration the use or cultivation of the soil. The long-term average soil erosion is calculated with the AVErosion 1.0 software package using MUSLE87 (Modified Universal Soil Loss Equation 1987).
