The ecological environment of Northeastern Ordos Basin which located in the Northwestern China belongs to arid and semi-arid area. The hazards of water and soil loss here are serious caused by gully river erosion. Since Soil erosion is an important factor leading to the destruction of regional ecology and has a profound impact on the long-term and healthy development of the economy and society, it is necessary to do research on the sensitivity analysis about soil erosion. In this study, the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method was used to determine the index weight of the factors for soil erosion, and made it more consistent with the whole regional condition. The results demonstrated that the soil medium, slope and vegetation coverage had the highest influence on soil erosion under the same climatic and meteorological conditions in the study area. This research evaluated the sensitivity factors and provided a significant guidance for soil erosion control.
