SOIL STRUCTURE DEFINED BY AIR PERMEABILITY
A soil air probe is developed and tested on three soil types. Air permeability and probe air flow rates are measured on disturbed soil cores at various bulk densities and moisture contents. Results indicate the probe could be used to measure air porosity and also air permeability if the moisture content and bulk density of the soil were known.
