A RUNOFF POTENTIAL RATING TABLE FOR SOILS

A RUNOFF POTENTIAL RATING TABLE BASED ON THE SOIL CATENA CONCEPT IS PROPOSED TO GROUP SOILS OF SIMILAR RUNOFF POTENTIAL. SEVEN RUNOFF POTENTIAL RATINGS ARE GIVEN ACCORDING TO INTERNAL DRAINAGE, DEPTH AND TEXTURE OF THE SOIL, AS WELL AS SUBSURFACE SOIL CONDITIONS. THE PROPOSED RATING TABLE IS TO BE APPLIED TO A DETAILED SOIL SURVEY. IN THE ABSENCE OF ADEQUATE SOIL REPORTS AN AIR PHOTO ANALYSIS APPROACH IS ALSO TENTATIVELY SUGGESTED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE USE OF THE PROPOSED SYSTEM. THE RATING SYSTEM ENABLES ENGINEERS TO CLASSIFY SOILS HYDROLOGICALLY. /AUTHOR/
