Title: Estimating Infiltration Rates for a Loessal Silt Loam Using Soil Properties
Author: Knighton, M. Dean;
Source: Research Note NC-233. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station
Publication Series: Research Note (RN)
Description: Soil properties were related to infiltration rates as measured by single-ringsteady-head infiltometers. The properties showing strong simple correlations were identified. Regression models were developed to estimate infiltration rate from several soil properties. The best model gave fair agreement to measured rates at another location.
Keywords: bulk density, organic carbon, ground cover, pore volume, modeling
