This software is released as FREEWARE for the scientific community.
This imply that is released and downloadable for free, but without warranties .
The authors of this software want acknowledge the people that with their testing activities and suggestions helped us to improve the performance of EUROSEM-2010.
All the Suggestions from the users are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
EUROSEM-2010 has been realised entirely in Object Pascal programming language, using:
Free Pascal compiler (fpc 2.6.2)
Lazarus IDE 1.0.12
EUROSEM also uses
for plotting and graphic rendering
EUROPEAN SOIL EROSION MODEL
(a freeware software for scientific community)
What is EUROSEM-2010
The European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM) is a dynamic distributed model, able to simulate sediment transport, erosion and deposition by rill and interill processes in single storms for both individual fields and small catchments.
Model output includes total runoff, total soil loss, the storm hydrograph and storm sediment graph.
EUROSEM describes the terrain using cascading planes and channels, is distributed and physically based. Its hydraulics, despite being limited to hortonian overland flows, is based on good mathematics and numerical approximations.
EUROSEM has been developed with Financial support of European commission research founds in the period 1986-2010) with the contribution of many European soil scientists (see EUROSEM history for credits and the developement steps of EUROSEM).
EUROSEM-2010 research effort follows the objectives were set as requirements for an European soil erosion model (Chisci and Morgan, 1988).
(1) enable the risk of erosion to be assessed;
(2) be applicable to fields and small catchments;
(3) operate on an event basis;
(4) be useful as a tool for selecting soil protection measures.
EUROSEM 2010-2001x NEXT STEPS
EUROSEM is still alive..and future efforts and contribution form soil scientis are expected..
The next steps in EUROSEM-201x future version are:
