Abstract
In Spain the potential problems associated with excessive soil erosion has long been recognised. The Universal Soil Loss Equation is the most widely used erosion model being one of the parameters used precipitation. There are difficulties to build daily rainfall, measured by rain gauges with high variability, and their spatial distribution with low coverage meteorological stations. Fournier index (Fournier, 1960) is used to assess the rainfall erosivity based on monthly rainfall, alternatively to use rainfall intensity in time bases under one hour (eg., van der Knijff et al., 1999; Shamshad et al, 2008). We will based in this index concept to create a new index base on vegetation activity.
