METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE WATER PERMEABILITY OF SOILS AND SHOWER RUN-OFF

Two types of methods for investigating water permeability are described. The first type which involves flooding of the soil surface, includes the differential method (tube method), flooding cylinders in different treatments (a modification of the method of flooding square areas), diking areas, the isolation of columns and monoliths and others. The second type of methods involves falling rain. Data show that both water permeability of the soil and runoff under otherwise uniform conditions depend on the intensity of the rain. The use of the sprinkling method in water permeability studies is reviewed, and the evaluation is discussed of the various methods particularly in relation to the influence of plot size on the erosion intensity.
