Laser Scanning Predicts Soil Structure's Effect on Hydrology

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
The use of lasers to study soil hydrology (the movement of water through soil) may help soil scientists more accurately predict water flow. Researchers at the University of Kansas have used a multistripe laser triangulation (MLT) scanner, originally developed for engineering purposes, to quantify macropores in soil from an excavation wall in northeastern Kansas in order to determine how the pore size in soil may help predict the preferential flow of water. “A significant portion of water is transported through a relatively few number of large pores,” said professor...Read full article
