Soil Water Repellence

Water repellence, or non-wetting, due to coating of soil particles by waxy materials from the breakdown of plant debris can result in water beading on the surface, uneven wetting and large masses of soil remaining dry. Mapping shows the proportion of land affected and degree of water repellence, while detailed proportion data are supplied for calculating respective areas of each water repellence class (spatial data statistics).
