    Hi there, 
    Water bodies do not produce sediment so I'd recommend setting the K factor to 0.
    Cheers

    Hello! I am using The FAO DSWM (Digital Soil Map of the World) to derive K factor for SDR model, but there are no values for  "DS = Dunes or shifting sands". What would You recommend? Thank You in advance!
