Abstract

The aims of this study were to assess the infiltration capacity of some extensive soils in Ireland and also its spatial and temporal variability. Infiltration capacity was measured using double-ring infiltrometers at one poorly drained, one imperfectly drained and eight freely drained sites. Discussion of the results of two series of measurements performed in winter and summer, in 1988 and in 1995-1996. A pronounced seasonal effect is highlighted and therefore a significant risk of overland flow in winter
