Aim: The paper focuses on the soil erosion, which is one of the most important agricultural problems in Kazakhstan. The aim of the study is to evaluate and map the erosion-free zone for the preservation of the water reservoir and quality soils in the Chagan River basin in the region of Western Kazakhstan. Thanks to this, it will be possible to implement erosion prevention measures.
