This paper deals with terrain erosion models. First we present several existing techniques for generating synthetical terrains. Then, some methods dealing with eroded terrain generation are described. Next, terrain erosion method are presented. Finally, new direction of this advanced modeling method are indicated.

Keywords Fractal, terrain generation techniques, fractional Brownian motion, erosion models.
