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  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  who used an infiltration model based on the Horton equation.
Keywords: PSW4351, soil moisture, water, soil temperature
