Abstract
Land and water is one of the major natural resource which has an important role for human life. Exploitation of land in catchment areas that not correspond to its carrying capacity will cause damage. One of the effect is increassing the soil erosion. Continuous erosion will also lead to increased sediment transport in rivers that disrupt the ship navigation on estuary due sediment accumulation. At present, soil erosion is estimated using USLE method, which is only limited to the erosion in the form of sheet erosion. The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of rill density on soil erosion compared to USLE-soil erosion mtethod. The research was cond...
