Abstract The Limburg Soil Erosion Model (LISEM) is described as a way of simulating hydrological and soil erosion processes during single rainfall events on the catchment scale. Sensitivity analysis of the model shows that the initial matric pressure potentialthe hydraulic conductivity of the soil and Manning's n are the most sensitive variables of the model. Planning and evaluation of various strategies for controlling pollution from intensively cropped areas can be assisted with the use of this model. Specifically, the siting of erosion control measures can be determined by comparing scenarios simulated by LISEM.
