ABSTRACT
The paper contains results transformation of the land cover on a small agricultural catchment (microbasin) in the Central Sudetes Mountain. Boguszyński Brook catchment area ( 1.42 km2) is the right-hand tributary of the third row Nysa Kłodzka river and represents agricultural areas of the north-eastern edge of the Kłodzko Valley at the junction with Bardzkie Mountains. Current land cover maps were vectorize base on land and buildings registry map and own observations. Proposals for land cover changes was base on water, potential, surface soil erosion created by qualitative method. Degrees of soil erosion risks were matched in the cultivation parcels. During the design land cover changes was taken into consideration creasing the retention of landscape by reducing the amount of surface runoff. The results of the point to the need to revise the usage of mountain farmland. As a result of the proposed transformation will increase the area of forest cover and reducing the area of arable land and grassland.
