Effects of flooding and subsequent drying on consolidation of beds of aggregates of a grey clay from Narrabri, N.S.W



Effects of flooding and subsequent drying on consolidation of beds of aggregates of a grey clay from Narrabri, N.S.W



Australian Journal of Soil Research 25(4): 567-574



Changes in porosity of beds of aggregates of a grey clay, from Narrabri, N.S.W., on drying after flooding were studied in a laboratory experiment. For both surface soil (0-0.2 m) and subsoil (0.8-1.0 m), as a result of quick wetting, air-filled porosities sufficiently low (< 0.1 msuperscript 3 m-3) to be adversely affecting plant growth were recorded in the aggregates beds for much of the plant-available moisture range.
