It has been suggested that the leaf litter layer influences soil infiltration processes in hillslopes. This paper examines the effect of the presence of the leaf litter layer in an oak woodland on conservative tracer transport measured in situ using time domain reflectometry (TDR) probes. This was done using repeated tracer miscible displacement studies, first with the litter layer intact and then again after removal of the litter layer. Tracer transport, as measured breakthrough curves (BTCs… CONTINUE READING
