Aggregate stability measurements under artificial rain

Bulletin Bodenkundliche Gesellschaft der Schweiz ( 13): 137-142

Aggregate stability measurements under artificial rain

The artificial rain method gave better results than the usual wet-sieving using dry and moist aggregates from 13 soils. With dry samples the rain method generally gave higher stability values; with moist samples, the reverse was true. Soil C content was an important factor in aggregate stability.
