TAS Country : May 24th 2012
Soil mystery cracked SCIENTISTS have cracked the mystery of why some soils lose water faster than expected. They have found deep cracks in soil can remain open underground even af- ter they have visibly sealed on the surface. Researchers at the Univer- sity of New South Wales have developed an in- novative technique for examining the flow of water through cracks in soil by measuring electrical resist- ance. They can detect the exact time when underground cracks close, a breakthrough that has implications for water management, and the timing and intensity of irri- gation and pesticides. The researchers found by sending an electrical current through the ground at differ- ent angles, they could measure how water was moving through the soil.
