An approach to the express-evaluation of the degree of potential erosion of a territory is developed. The approach includes using the data from a digital model of relief, climatic factors, and vegetation. The express-evaluation of potentially erosive areas of the soil cover on the territory of Ukraine is carried out according to the developed methodology. The ranking of potentially hazardous areas according to the degree of danger has been carried out.

Keywords: digital model of relief, NDVI, precipitation, remote sensing methods, soil erosion
