Stones resting on the top soil cause heterogeneous patterns of fire-induced water repellency
Depending on soil and fire characteristics, soil water repellency (SWR) may be induced, enhanced or destroyed by burning. The spatial pattern of SWR may be extremely heterogeneous as a consequence of the temperature peaks, ...
Spatial Gradients of Intensity and Persistence of Soil Water Repellency Under Different Forest Types in Central Mexico
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
Organic residues release hydrophobic compounds to the soil that may induce soil water repellency (WR), which may inhibit inﬁltration andincrease runoff and soil loss rates. Although there are many studies on soil WR through ...
