This study was carried out, at the Ataturk University Research Farm in the Erzurum Plain, to determine the effects of field traffic operations on the changes in spatial variability of soil aggregate stability (AS), bulk density (BD), total porosity (TP), penetration resistance (PR) and volumetric moisture content (VMC) in the various soil depths as indicators of soil compaction. It is highlighted that AS and PR were greatly affected by the traffic operations as compared to BD, TP and VMC. Moreover, soil compaction is more pronounced at the surface as compared to the subsurface
