About the value of usle_c and usle_p

Hey, I am trying to run the SDR model for my thesis. I want to know how to predict the usle_c and usle_p values, should I refer any previous research done in the nearby area or the land type for it, or these values I can give on my own basis with my own understanding

Hi @shantanu -

Yes, you should do a literature search to look for studies that were done nearby, or in a similar landscape. There are lots of USLE studies out there, so hopefully there will be some that seem relevant to your study area, land cover types and management practices. You can also use your own understanding to assign the USLE C and P values if you have that knowledge. Either way, make sure to keep a record of all of your data sources to share with your audience.
