Location: Watershed Physical Processes Research

Project Number: 6060-13000-029-038-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 21, 2023
End Date: Aug 30, 2024

The main research project objective is to enhance the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (Version 2) in coordination with Cooperator. Additional research project objectives are to: (1) build updated execution parameter database for use with cloud based and stand-alone versions of RUSLE2 in coordination with Cooperator.

The framework in support of the development of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation, Version 2 (RUSLE2) integrates elements of a comprehensive research plan that entails additional RUSLE2 technology programming development through the following tasks: USDA-ARS Tasks to be completed: Task 1. Build a new RUSLE2 database that can be stood up as a service for the new RUSLE2 web application being developed by Cooperator via a separate cooperative agreement. Task 2. Allow multiple users of the RUSLE2 web application or stand-alone RUSLE2 software to run from the same database. Task 3. Ensure database integrity during the initial build.
