Abstract

Saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ks) is one of the soil properties used most often to predict soil behavior and suitability for a variety of uses. The aims of this study were to evaluate Ks for major horizons in soils and landscapes in the Georgia Piedmont and to relate Ks to morphological properties of these horizons. Ten sites across the region were selected, and 21 pedons arranged in 3 transects were described from auger holes and pits. Many factors appear to influence Ks of these soils. Discussion of the results
