Effect of the wettability of the surface on the capillary movement of moisture in soil


, : Effect of the wettability of the surface on the capillary movement of moisture in soil. Pochvovedenie (9): 137-141

The capillary rise of various liquids in quartz sand depended on their wetting capacity. Treating the sand with humic substances decreased its wettability. The wetting capacity of different layers of adsorbed water was different.
