Soil erosion modelling, described here, is based on the methods explained by Morgan (Morgan, 1986; Morgan and Finney, 1984). The model tries to encompass some of the recent advances in understanding of erosion processes. The model separates the soil erosion process into a water phase and a sediment phase. It considers soil erosion to result from the detachment of soil particles by raindrop impact and the transport of those particles by overland flow.
