On standardizing the water drop penetration timeand the molarity of an ethanol droplet techniques to classify soil hydrophobicity : a case study using medium textured soils

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study uses sandy loam soils comprising a broad range in particle size and degree of hydrophobicity to 1) assess how well measurements taken on air-dried and sieved laboratory samples reflect the hydrophobicity of an undisturbed, dry in situ soil surface in the field; 2) examine the reproducibility of hydrophobicity results in the laboratory; and 3) determine the comparibility of MED and WDPT test results. Based on these results, standards for the MED and WDPT techniques are suggested
