Hellden U () An assessment of woody biomass, community forests, land use and soil erosion in Ethiopia: a feasibility study on the use of remote sensing and GIS analysis for planning purposes. Two studies have used a land use model to analyze a dynamic path for biomass in a mitigation portfolio [19] [20]. These studies examine biomass from both agricultural crops and woody biomass. However, their analyses lack a detailed description of the forestry sector which limits how accurately they capture woody biomass in their models. The SOC loss through soil erosion, deforestation, and land use change is estimated to be from 15 to kg ha−1 yr−1 in Ethiopia. Agroforestry parklands are a common land-use in Ethiopia. 1. Estimated rates of soil loss on slopes in Ethiopia 20 2. Annual loss of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus associated with the loss of top soil under various land use systems 22 3. Composition of livestock in highlands and lowlands of Ethiopia 25 4.

Forest is one of the major natural resources which play a vital role in maintaining the ecological balance of nature. Detection of forest degradation with remote sensing remains a challenging field of study. Over exploitation of forest resources has resulted in the depletion of the extent and quality forests resources. The present study was undertaken to monitor deforestation, forest.   Soil erosion is more sensitive in the highlands of Ethiopia. The purpose of this study is evaluating erosion risk potential using RUSLE model with GIS and remote sensing to identify erosion potential areas for soil and water resources conservation plan and to prepare soil loss risk map. Collected data were processed and analyzed using Arc GIS version.   An assessment of woody biomass, community forests, land use and soil erosion in Ethiopia. Lund studies in Geography, Ser. C.
