Considered prime soils for surface irrigation, their often relatively high proportions of silt and sand in the upper horizon may cause infiltration and runoff problems, leading to sediment loss and erosion (Santos et al., ; Ferreira et al., ; Shainberg et al., ).

Soil series Pg, Ppg and Vt belong to a class of poorly mature soils Cited by: Negative effects of surface runoff and soil erosion in watersheds can be controlled and mitigated through hydrological models.

Moreover, they are suitable to simulate various combinations of different scenarios of land and water management in a watershed and therefore they are useful for comparative analysis of different options and as a guide to what Best Management Practices (BMPs) can be Cited by: 1.

Runoff happens more readily with poorly managed soils, because they lack strong aggregates that hold together against the force of raindrops and moving water and, therefore, have few large pores open to the surface to quickly conduct water downward.

Such runoff can initiate erosion, with losses of nutrients and agrochemicals as well as sediment. Infiltration of water into soils as influenced by antecedent moisture Richard Ervin Green Iowa State University Follow this and additional works at: Water infiltration into soils is a process of major to prediction of surface runoff from watersheds, requiredCited by: The terms, “surface runoff” and “infiltration,” which form the title of this paper, are usually associated with a piece of land and the precipitation falling upon it.

They suggest that this ground is porous, that part of the water will infiltrate into it while the rest runs off along the surface or evaporates. AN EMPIRICAL METHOD FOR DETERMINING AVERAGE SOIL INFILTRATION RATES AND RUNOFF, POWDER RIVER STRUCTURAL BASIN, WYOMING By J.

Rankl ABSTRACT This report describes a method to estimate infiltration rates of soils for use in predicting runoff from small basins containing these by: 4.

Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the is commonly used in both hydrology and soil infiltration capacity is defined as the maximum rate of infiltration.

It is most often measured in meters per day but can also be measured in other units of distance over time if necessary. The infiltration capacity decreases as the soil moisture content. Problems Related to Infiltration and Relationship of Infiltration to Soil Function. When rainfall occurs at a rate that exceeds the soil’s infiltration capacity, runoff moves downslope or ponds on the surface of level land.

When runoff occurs on bare or poorly vegetated soil, File Size: KB. As it moves through the water cycle on Earth, which is the natural circulation of water between surface water, air, and ground, it faces choices, like going through a Choose Your Own Adventure book.

Infiltration And Surface Runoff By Professor Nils Nykvist The soil’s uptake of water is affected by the form in which precipitation reaches the ground surface. With a nice, quiet rain, water is sucked up into the fine pores and spreads by capillary action further down into deeper layers.
