Erosion is one of the geomorphological processes that play a role in the development of landforms. Erosion events are controlled by exogenous energy through geomorphological agents. The rate of soil erosion in each ecosystem differs depending on how strong the erosion factor affects the soil conditions. Erosion rates will be very dangerous if erosion occurs in large erosion and in large areas. This will result in disruption of human activities and harm to society. Therefore, the importance of knowing the rate of eroded land and its variables so that this can be used in developing development and so as not to cause harm to the community. The purpose of this study was to map the area of soil erosion that occurred in Ci Lutung watershed and how big the erosion was and to find out how effective soil conservation was carried out on erosion occurring. In this study using the RUSLE (Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation) method as an equation to determine the amount of erosion and the incidence of erosion at Ci Lutung watershed. The results showed that Ci Lutung watershed's erosion incidence was dominated by mild but extensive erosion events and the impact of severe erosion events could affect human activities.
