[AGE30-P01] Analysis of soil erosion on cropland considering future climate change in Okinawa
Keywords:WEPP Model, MarkSim, Global warming, Red soil runoff
In the climate input data created from MarkSim, precipitation tended to increase with the rise in temperature due to global warming. However, in the WEPP analysis under bare soil condition and under sugarcane farming condition, no increase in risk of erosion due to climate change could be confirmed. This is because the infiltration amount in the cropland increased with excessive drying of surface soil due to increasing evaporation. From the above, it is suggested that the increase in precipitation due to future climate change may not necessarily lead to an increase in erosion amount.
