Erosion risk map for arable land in Switzerland in a 2x2-metre grid based on SwissALTI3D and cantonal surface-area data on arable land. No surface-area data on arable land are yet available for the seven cantons of BS, GE, JU, LU, OW, TI and ZH; for these, the arable acreage was determined from satellite images (FCover300m). The map shows the potential qualitative erosion risk. The overall rating is allocated to one of three risk levels (no risk; risk; high risk) without taking account of soil use or management method. The long-term mean soil erosion is calculated on the basis of the universal soil loss equation (USLE).
