Een digital terreinmodel als humpmiddel bij het specifiëren van het drainagegedrag van de bodem. (A digital terrain model as a technical instrument for the specification of the drainage behaviour of soils)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The effect of topography on the drainage behaviour of soils is analyzed. The slope is shown as a measure for the intensity of the lateral flux, while the divergency appears to be a good criterion for specifying the changes in soil moisture. Both parameters defined were compared to the drainage classification, as specified in the Belgian soil map, with application to the Mark catchment area. The slope and the divergency of the land were calculated for each modal point of an equidistant grid. (LW).
