A methodology for detecting and overcoming these scaling problems is developed and applied to a global-scale soil erosion model. The method involves applying a sensitivity analysis of the soil erosion model to scale in order to determine the causes of the scaling problems. To overcome these problems, multiple scale data sets of model parameters are used to develop statistical and fractal techniques that explain the spatial variability of model parameters at different scales.
