Abstract

Two rainfall simulators of different plot size were used to test whether sediment in runoff could be used to measure aggregate breakdown in the surface of a cracking clay soil under rain. Size distributions of deposited sediment were similar to those of the surface of adjacent furrow ridges exposed to raindrop impact. This provides evidence that sampling the soil surface with a spatula gives a representative sample of the material available for rainflow transport
