Short summary
A new pan-European map of soil erosion is presented following a novel extension of the RUSLE model (e-RUSLE) designed for data-poor regional assessment and for identifying areas in Europe where to concentrate efforts for preventing soil degradation. e-RUSLE exploits the array-based semantics of a multiplicity of factors (semantic array programming). A climatic ensemble of an array of erosivity equations is considered along with a new factor for better considering soil stoniness within the model.
