Title: Puerto Rico Soil Erodibility (Kffact)
Short Name: pr_kffact_metadata
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2005-10
Abstract:

Puerto Rico soil erodibility (Kffactor) - low values indicate low vulnerability to erosion, higher values mean higher susceptibility to runoff.

Purpose:

This data set provides the soil erodibility of soils in Puerto Rico, which describes the susceptibility of an area to erosion. The erodibility is related to the clay, sand and silt composition of the soil.
