Abstract
Soil erosion is one of the most important factors of soils, natural systems and ecosystems degradation in Spain with important social, economic and environmental implications,. Soil erosion influences desertification processes at all scales. Since 1978, the Ministry of Environment became aware of this problem and in 2001 lauched the "National Inventory of Soil Erosion - INES (2002-2012)" to study the process of soil erosion in Spain. The National Inventory of Soil Erosion is part of the Spanish Biodiversity and Natural Heritage Inventory, which in turn forms a part of the Forest Statistical Profile established by the Spanish Forestry Plan, Forest Law 43/2003 (amended by Law 10/2006), and the Natural Heritage and Biodiversity Law 42/2007. The development of the National Inventory of Soil Erosion is currently entrusted to the Directorate General of the Natural Environment and Forest Policy in the Spanish Ministry of the Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs (MARM, formerly the Ministry of the Environment). The aim of this article is to describe the main components of the National Inventory (rill and interrill erosion, gully and ravine erosion, mass movements, stream-bank erosion and wind erosion). The methodology and main features of this National Inventory are explained in detail. Results obtained by 2010 are presented together with the status of provinces assessed and a schedule of completion by 2012. Finally, the resulting INES maps and tables are illustrated.
