Short summary
This study is on the spatial variability of soil properties and soil erodibility in the Alqueva reservoir, specifically regarding montado grassland land-use changes to more intensive and irrigated agriculture. Facing an intensification of land-use conversion will have an effect on soil erodibility and consequently increase the sedimentation into the reservoir and decrease its lifetime. Sustainable management is needed to introduce protective measures to control soil erosion.
