Compacted Urban Soils and their Remediation

  title={Compacted Urban Soils and their Remediation},
  author={Robert E. Pitt},
The effects of urbanization on soil structure can be extensive. Infiltration of rain water through soils can be greatly reduced, plus the benefits of infiltration and biofiltration devices can be severely jeopardized. Our research group (along with others), have been studying disturbed urban soils for several decades, both in the laboratory and in the field. The effects of compaction on infiltration capacities and plant growth for different types of soils have been the greatest interest, along…
