In the present research, the environmental fragility model of Ross (1994) that identifies environmental fragility indexes of an area through the analysis of variables related to relief, soil, land use and cover and climatic aspects, will be applied to obtain results related to erosion processes in the city of Anhumas-SP, with the final objective of producing a map of environmental fragility of the study area.
