TIMM, Luís Carlos et al. Soil hydraulic conductivily measurement on a sloping field. Rev. bras. eng. agríc. ambient. [online]. 2000, vol.4, n.3, pp. 480-482. ISSN 1807-1929. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-43662000000300027.
A field methodology is presented for the measurement of the soil hydraulic conductivity in a sloping field, minimizing the leveling soil movement before water pounding and redistribution. The assurance of vertical flow only is performed through soil water potential isolines. The hydraulic conductivity was determined by the instantaneous profile method. Results for the nine neutron probe access tubes indicate that one single K(q) relation is sufficient to represent the experimental site.
