Abstract

To ascertain if the formation and survival of colluvium deposits, step-like in cross section, can affect soil property variation, a study was carried out in 3 fields at 3 different sites in mid-County Down. Results show that downslope changes in soil properties are influenced by surface wash, as well as by the development of a saturated wedge and longer soil moisture residence times, following the alteration of pathways of moisture movement, in the vicinity of the colluvial deposits
