Abstract
This study compares the results of a standard Soil Conservation Service Phase 1 Land Resource Inventory to those of a computerized geo-based (ADAPT) generated potential gross erosion estimate. The area studied was the Blue Creek Watershed, Pike County, Illinois. The goal was to determine whether the ADAPT system could delineate and quantify potential sediment source areas as accurately as the Phase 1 Inventory. The study concluded that ADAPT provided the means for delineating and quantifying potential sediment source areas as accurately as the traditional field method.
