The ombrographic data have been selected from 24 meteorological stations of the Czech Hydro Meteorological Institute (CHMI), according to the terms of the Universal Soil Loss Equation for calculating the long term loss of soil through water erosion, erosion hazard rains and their occurrence, with their relative amounts and erosiveness, R-factors determined for each month. By comparing the value of the time division of the R-factor in the area of the Czech Republic and in the selected areas of the USA, it has been demonstrated that this division may be applied in the conditions of the Czech Republic.Keywords:
