Quantitative research on the soil erosion intensity in the mountain areas of Beijing was estimated via utilizing RUSLE model supported by GIS and RS technology. It is concluded that no erosion and slight erosion were the primary erosion intensities in the mountain areas of Beijing. The soil erosion was distributed mainly on the steep slope or risk slope of Beijing mountain areas with a gradient of greater than 15 degree, in the forest land of Beijing mountain areas and mountain areas with vegetation coverage of less than 30% or between 45 and 65%.
