What is WEPP?

Question: 

What is WEPP?

Answer: 

WEPP is an erosion prediction model applicable to small watersheds and can simulate up to large fields, mimicking the natural processes important in soil erosion. Everyday it updates the soil and crop conditions that affect soil erosion. When rainfall occurs, the planted crop and soil characteristics are used to determine if surface runoff will occur; then the program will compute estimated sheet, rill, and channel soil erosion detachment and deposition.
