Pilot Project for Erosion Estimation Using RS / GIS Technologies - for the Catchment Area of Madan Reservoir

Participants: ENERGOPROEKT, Sofia University, BASA-ReSAC

The Project objectives were to:

  • Assemble a high-quality GIS dataset for the Madan Reservoir Basin using data for soils, land cover / land use, management, geology, topography, climate and water quality data;
  • Model erosion processes using GIS data and USLE model;
  • Test the model predictions with in-situ experiments and historical data;
  • Use the model to evaluate potential water quality benefits associated with the adoption of alternative management strategies on the Madan Reservoir Basin.
