Abstract: Soil erosion modeling is effective in identifying areas that are most susceptible to soil loss, in order to appropriately manage and minimize the impacts of such degradation. This paper has outlined a study of quantifying soil loss using RUSLE methodology and GIS in one province of Vietnam. However the methodology has the potential to be applied to other areas for soil loss assessment. The mountainous regions of Quang Tri Province are highly susceptible to soil erosion. The complex topography and susceptibility to severe coastal weather conditions, combined with high population density and often poorly monitored agricultural and farming practices, make this environment particularly fragile.
