- ... Understanding the magnitude and variability of water and solute fluxes in the vadose zone is required to assess the risk of potential contamination of ground water resources. In this study, the long-term (>30 yr) movement of a Cl tracer applied to the soil surface is quantified. In 1966, granular KCl was applied to the surface of nine 6 by 90 m plots at a field site near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. A ...

- ... A study was undertaken to determine the importance of subsurface flow and drainage in a northern Saskatchewan forested basin, and to examine the effect of clear-cutting on the hydrologic cycle. Components of the soil water cycle were estimated for clear-cut and forested sites during the spring melt and growing season. Surface runoff was measured using interceptor troughs and tipping-bucket gauges. ...
