Soil infiltration video, ed. 4

The Modified Philip Dunne (MPD) infiltrometer is a novel means of measuring the hydraulic conductivity and suction head for infiltration practices. It requires less water and less energy than the traditional double ring infiltrometer. This video demonstrates the use of the MPD infiltrometer and the use of a spreadsheet that translates the MPD data into a soil hydraulic conductivity and suction head.
