Soil is one of the most vital natural resources in any country. Nowadays, lands are rarely found worldwide without having severe erosion problem. Landslide is one of the soil erosion processes in which a huge volume of soil is washed away. SHETRAN Model was used in this study to assess the landslides being occurred in Zidasht catchment, Taleghan. At the first stage, sediment-water mixed samples were gathered at the outlet of the Catchment for calibration purpose in 2011. To run the model, regions undergoing landslide were identified using GISLIP sub-model. Secondly, after hydrological and sediment production simulations in a sub-model of SHETRAN for the region, calibration was made for spring season. After the calibration process, the model was run again, this time for the regions having landslide (for 418 spots), and in regions where landslide sediments do not pour into water courses, these regions were omitted, the final amount of sediment was calculated using SHETRAN sub-model and the results were compared with the previous studies. The results show that 19.75% of the total sediment belongs to landslides. With regard to the current sediment quantity of about 111248 kg, total sediment in landslides was estimated to be around 120668kg.
