Abstract

Abstract

Three soils were chosen to test the hypothesis that differences in rates of mineral dissolution among soils may account for much of the observed differences in their susceptibilities to hydraulic conductivity decreases when leached with distilled water. Our results agreed reasonably well with the hypothesis. Differences between soils in their ability to release salt and to undergo dispersion are probably especially important in affecting crust formation under rainfall conditions.
