Abstract

Soil hydraulic properties were determined in situ by the instantaneous profile method on three 3-m square plots of Dothan soil. Simultaneous measurements of matric tension and moisture content with depth during drainage were made with tensiometers and a field-calibrated neutron probe. Unsaturated conductivity values calculated form the in situ data ranged within an order of magnitude for corresponding horizons in the three plots.-from Authors
