Description: Infiltration continues to occupy the attention of soil physicists and engineers. A theoretical and experimental analysis of the effect of surface sealing on infiltration by Edwards and Larson [1969] showed that raindrops reduced the infiltration rate by as much as 50% for a two-hour period of infiltration. The effect of raindrops on the surface infiltration rate of soils has been investigated by Seginer and Morin [1970] who used an infiltration model based on the Horton equation.

Keywords: PSW4351, soil moisture, water, soil temperature
