The core function of RUSLE2 is to estimate soil eroded by the impact of raindrops and by the flow of runoff water across land disturbed by plowing and tilling. Erosion caused by concentrated ephemeral gully flow in topographic swales is not currently included in RUSLE2 predictions but will be in the future.
