Research Project: Programmers Guide to the RUSLES2 Source Code

Location: Watershed Physical Processes Research Unit

Project Number: 6408-13000-023-17
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Sep 01, 2011
End Date: Jun 30, 2013

Objective:
The purpose of this agreement is for the United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (ARS), to continue development, programming, debugging, and documentation of the computer code of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE2) (Version 2) for use by Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). RUSLE2 is the water erosion prediction tool for use by NRCS.

Approach:
1. Create additional Doxygen project(s) to document the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE2) science code and integrate them to the existing documentation. 2. Create documentation describing all the separate modules, classes, functions and files in Rusle2 using Doxygen, and produce high-level overviews describing the several model components. 3. Convert existing Rusle2 documentation in other formats (Microsoft Word documents, Rich Text Format, etc) into the Doxygen format and integrate those into the rest of the documentation. 4. Document the implementation of science functions by adding references to appropriate sections, pages, or equations in the existing RUSLE2 Users Guide and RUSLE2 Science Documentation.
