Title: Evaluation of several methods of applying sewage effluent to forested soils in the winter.
Author: Harris, Alfred Ray;
Source: Research Paper NC-162. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station
Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: Surface application methods result in heat loss, deep soil frost, and surface ice accumulations; subsurface methods decrease heat loss and produce shallower frost. Distribution of effluent within the frozen soil is a function of surface application methods, piping due to macropores and biopores, and water movement due to temperature gradients. Nitrate is not renovated.
Keywords: soil water renovation, infiltrations, soil heat loss, soil water movement, effluent distribution
