Abstract
This paper presents a study on the quantitaive characterization of a very important property of the rainfall, the kinetic energy, and its application in order to obtain R factor (KE*I30) which determines rainfall erosivity. In the erosion studies the kinetic energy of the rainfall, necessary to calculate the erosivity, has been estimated by using empirical formulae taking part rainfall intensity. For this, it is necessary the availability of registered data of rainfall intensity in stations with pluviographs. In this research, it has been obtained a relationship between the daily kinetic energy (KE24h ) and the daily rainfall (P24h ) with registered data. Therefore, the kinetic energy may be calculated with the registered daily rainfall in a normal meteorological station with only pluviometers.
