The aims of this research were to analyze the relationships between soil water repellency measured on undisturbed soil blocks and 2-mm hand sieved samples, and to compare the results between both methods (water drop penetration time, WDPT, and ethanol percentage, EP, tests). Water repellency was measured on the surface and at soil depths of 2 cm and 5 cm for 3 fine textured soil types (Rendzic Phaeozem, Hypercalcic Calcisol, and Eutric Cambisol) developed below different plant covers (mossy pine forest, evergreen oak forest, and meadow, respectively). At the class level, WDPT and EP tests offered similar results for unaltered and sieved samples. Differences in the wettability has been observed between soil depths and soil types
