Aggregate stability measurements under artificial rain

, : Aggregate stability measurements under artificial rain. Bulletin Bodenkundliche Gesellschaft der Schweiz ( 13): 137-142

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.

In this paper, we evaluated the relevance of an aggregat...
