EROSION RATE OF COMPACTED NA-MONTMORILLONITE SOILS. DISCUSSION

This is a discussion of a paper of the above title by A. Shaikh, J.F. Ruff, and S.R. Abt in Volume 114, No.3 (May 1988) of this journal. The discusser notes that recirculation of water should not have been tried in the experimental setup. Such water will contain some load of sediment and erosion rate of soil sample due to polluted water is bound to be different from erosion rate due to nonpolluted water. It is also pointed out that erosion rate studies should have been conducted on noncohesive soils.
