In the updated versions of InVEST, basically on water yield model as the one I am using, 
in it's biophysical table as mentioned from sample data, some columns are not explained in the user Guide.
the table has 17 columns and 5 of them are explained in the user guide.
any one with link of updated user guide can help 

here can be said like: 

usle_c ,

    Hi @Clarisse -

    Those columns are for other freshwater models. usle_c and _p are for the SDR model, load_n and eff_n for NDR, etc. You don't need to include them in your table if you are only using the Water Yield model. But if you use more than one model, all of the biophysical coefficients for the same land use/land cover raster can be in the same table, like you see in the sample data.

    One thing that is old and should be updated is that we no longer use sedret_eff for the SDR model.
