An analysis of soil crust strength in relation to potential abrasion by saltating particles






Earth Surface Processes and Landforms 22(9): 869-883

An analysis of soil crust strength in relation to potential abrasion by saltating particles

Two possible methods to determine surface soil strength in the field were compared on a range of artificially 'crusted' surfaces. These were made by spraying or tension wetting aggregates (10-2, 2-0.5 and <0.5 mm) from a structurally unstable sandy loam, followed by drying.
