A method for measuring the vertical and horizontal Ksat of clay soils with macropores


, : A method for measuring the vertical and horizontal Ksat of clay soils with macropores. Soil Science Society of America Journal 45(3): 662-663

A field method is presented for measuring the vertical and horizontal saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat) of a cube of soil (25 X 25 X 25 cm) which is carved out in situ and covered with gypsum on four sides. A vertical Ksat is measured by infiltrating water into the exposed upper surface and by collecting it below the exposed lower surface of the cube. The cube is then turned so that the two open surfaces become sides.
