A flotation method for the rapid measurement of the wet bulk density of soil clods

, : A flotation method for the rapid measurement of the wet bulk density of soil clods. Journal of Soil Science 24(2): 239-243

Soil clods were sprayed with a waterproof coating of a resin and then immersed sequentially in liquids of different specific gravity. The method was compared with the wax coating method for a selection of soil textures and moisture contents, and found to be ten times as rapid when used to measure wet bulk density with an accuracy of plus or minus 0.05g/cm3.
