Surface Runoff Processes and Design of Erosion Control Measure in Landscape and Artificial Slopes
06-28, 14:20–14:25 (Europe/Tirane), UBT C / N110 - Second Floor

Surface runoff is one of the processes with direct impact on water erosion. Surface runoff has two basic components: a) sheet runoff and b) rill runoff. Observation of these phenomena at various scales and then using mathematical models to describe their observations plays a key role for soil protection. One of the models developed to compute these phenomena is SMODERP, used for example in the flexible and adaptive approach to land management and landscape planning called Model of Living Landscape project. Innovative application of the SMODERP model ( named SMODERP Line is presented in this contribution. SMODERP Line is accessible through various interfaces including OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) which can be easily integrated into user-defined processing pipelines or web applications. Usage of SMODERP2D Line will be demonstrated in the QGIS environment through a new OWSLib-based QGIS WPS Client Plugin (
