Displacement of Soil Water by Simulated Rainfall1

Abstract

Abstract

Displacement of initial soil water by simulated rainfall was measured in aggregates of Maury silt loam soil in columns in the laboratory and under field conditions using tritiated water and/or Cl- as a tracer of added water. Displacement values measured in aggregates were larger (53 to 85%) than those measured under field conditions (7 to 56%). Percent displacement of initial soil water in Calloway silt loam under field conditions were similar to those of Maury, but were larger in Huntington silty clay loam than in Maury. Initial soil water content of Maury soil did not appear to affect percent displacement. Percent displacement in Maury soil increased as the depth of tillage increased.
