Soil porosity study of fersiallitic red soils of southern Spain by optical-electronic and conventional methods



Soil porosity study of fersiallitic red soils of southern Spain by optical-electronic and conventional methods



Soil Microscopy: 441-454



These red soils have a moderate to good porosity in the upper horizon with a decrease in porosity in the B horizon. The porosity can be explained as a result of pedogenesis and the presence of fine sand (0.2-0.02 mm fraction) in the parent material. The increase in clay in the B horizon determines the physical properties studied in connection with porosity. A comparison of the methods used shows that the results correlate reasonably well when applied to the red soil profiles.
