Using mapped watersheds as a unit for summary statistics, we provide a series of indicators focused on land-based sources of threat within the US Virgin Islands. This includes indicators of a) the relative vulnerability of the land to erosion (based on slope, precipitation and soil erodibility); b) the relative erosion potential (REP) of the land, based on the relative vulnerability of the land, coupled with the current land cover type; c) the sediment delivery rate for each basin (percentage of eroded which reaches the river mouth); d) estimated sediment delivery for the basin, given current land use; e) the road density within the basin, and f) indicators of how erosion prone areas with roads might be (average and total for the basin)
