In this paper, we tried to find interrelations between water retention properties, surface characteristics, and structural features of sandy soils rich in organic matter. Raw humic, epihumic, and endohumic horizons of four acidic sandy forest soils were selected for this study. Specific areas and water adsorption energies were estimated from water vapor adsorption isotherms, micropore (nanometer range) parameters from desorption isotherms, mesopore (micrometer range) parameters from mercury… CONTINUE READING
