Sir, The impact of raindrops has major consequences on the soil surface conditions. The effects of rain drop energy on erosion and infiltration have been investigated (Fernandes et al., 1997). Palmer (1965) found that a thin layer of water increases the effects of raindrop impact force on soil properties; this result has been confirmed by numerical simulation (Huang et al., 1983; Chang & Hills, 1993). During heavy rain, low depth of water in puddles or pools could constitute a hostile… CONTINUE READING
