PhD Thesis Presentation Peter Löwe.
The dissertation "Artificial Intelligence Methods in Radarmeteorology and Soil Erosion Research" discusses the assessment of potential rainfall erodibility in regard to soil erosion processes in South Africa.
Knowledge-based approaches are used to derive rainfall information from weather radar data for the recording of erosivity pulses from individual rainfall events.
This precipitation data is used as input for a erosivity modell consisting built out of cellular automata.
The results generated by the modell are presented and discussed.
