Title: Effects of management on soil hydraulic properties
Author: O'Neill, B.; Kachanoski, R. G.; Elrick, D. E.
Abstract: The general objective of the 1989-1990 study was to use the pressure infiltrometer to assess the effects of management on surface hydraulic properties. Specific objectives were: 1. To further test the relationship between rainfall runoff (from rainfall simulation experiments) and predicted runoff using measurements of Kfs, ?m, ?? and Tp from the pressure infiltrometer. 2. To examine the temporal changes in hydraulic properties measured with the pressure infiltrometer under two tillage systems and compare them to temporal changes in surface runoff (simulated). 3. To examine the effects of different cropping/tillage systems on changes in surface hydraulic properties.
