[dataset] Global Soil Erosion Modelling platform (GloSEM) - 2001

This map provides an assessment of global soil erosion for 2012 and 2001. We used the 250m original data to re-sample at 25km. In this study 202 countries are included with more than 125 millionKm2. The total soil loss has been estimated to 35 Pg yr-1 of soil eroded in 2001. The estimates are lower compared to past studies in 2012, 35.9 Pg yr-1 - Increase of 2.5% in soil erosion globally (due to land use change).
