Polyacrylamide amendment for erosion and runoff control on soils of differing characteristics
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
The use of anionic polyacrylamide (PAM) as a soil amendment is an emerging conservation practice. However, guidelines have not been developed with considerations of soil properties and topographic characteristics. The ...
Soil surface-seal measurement using high-resolution x-ray computed tomography (HRCT)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Rainfall on bare soil breaks soil aggregates, detaching particles, plugging pores and decreasing porosity in the top few mm of soil. This reduces hydraulic conductivity and increases runoff through a process known as surface ...
