Universal Soil Loss Equation
An equation used for the design of water erosion control systems. A = RKLSPC wherein A = average annual soil loss in tons per acre per year, R = rainfall factor, K = soil erodibility factor, L = length of slope, S = percent of slope, P = conservation practice factor, and C = cropping and management factor.
