Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The results of a study which compared four methods for measuring saturated hydraulic conductivity in the vadose zone are presented. Methods selected included an automated constant head test and the falling head test (laboratory methods), and the Guelph borehole permeameter and double ring infiltrometer methods (in-situ methods). It was determined the preferred laboratory method is the falling head test and the preferred field method is the Guelph borehole permeameter method.
