Micromorphological analysis to characterize structure modifications of soil samples submitted to wetting and drying cycles


To study the consequences of these wetting and drying (W-D) events on possible modifications in pore size distribution, pore number, and pore shape of soil samples collected in metal rings pore image analysis was used. Samples were taken from profiles of 3 soils of different characteristics in Piracicaba, SP, Brazil. Image cross sections of resin impregnated soil permitted the micrometric and macrometric characterization of changes in soil structure induced by sequences of W-D cycles. Duncan's statistical test indicated that there were significant differences among treatments for all soil samples
