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

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.
