The specific objectives are: (1) apply the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) model for the whole island, (2) compute soil loss estimates for the high-erosion areas (HEA) initially mapped, and (3) define a second approach for mapping of HEA and derive estimates of RUSLE soil loss for these HEA.
