Paper Abstract

The city of Jinan is the capital of Shandong province. The southern mountain of Jinan is a sensitive region of soil erosion. Severe soil erosion not only destroys the ecosystem environment roughly, affects the economic and social sustainable development, but also endangers its spring. Therefore, the assessment of soil erosion, as the basis of the comprehensive control and use planning on Jinan, must be done actively. But till now, there has been no unanimous conclusion on the quantitative assessment indexes and their thresholds for the small watershed on Jinan. The study area is the city of Jinan. With the principles of combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis, macroscopic and microscopic analysis, the assessment indexes of soil erosion are selected through a series processes such as analysis of relations between the influencing indexes and soil erosion. The soil erosion intensity of the whole watershed is assessed with the qualitative method of RS and GIS.
