Abstract

The hydrodynamic laws for the flow of water through those soil voids, the properties of which are determined by the size distribution and the deposition pattern of the mineral particles, no longer apply to already very small inter-aggregate voids arising from processes of soil structure formation. The significance of differences in soil structure in the field and in structural fluctuations with time for the movement of water can, however, only be quantified if knowledge about the effect of the morphometry of inter-aggregate voids on the flow processes is available.
