Rainfall interception and splash detachment with a Brussels sprouts plant: a laboratory simulation

Auteurs :
NOBLE, C. A.

Description :
Rates of splash detachment from a sandy soil of the Cottenham series, subjected to a five minute design storm of 50 mm/h with a kinetic energy of 127 J/m and a median volum drop size of 3,2 mm supplied from a rotating-disc rainfall simulator, are determined without a plant cover and with the cover of a single Brussels sprouts plant. The detachment rate was found rather surprisingly to be inversely related to the energy of the rainfall under the plant and positively related to the number of leaves.
