Dejavu, your question was staring me in the face for several hours, so I finally decided to see whether I could answer it.

The Universal Soil Loss Equation, which predicts the long-term average annual rate of erosion on a field slope based on several factors is:

A = R x K x LS x C x P

Now, if I've messed up on that, blame this site:
