Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows: When water is applied, particles of soils with high smectite (montmorillonite) clay content may swell considerably due to hydration of expandable soil minerals. Such swelling reduces the cross-sectional area of soil pores. The process of swelling is more pronounced in the presence of high sodium or low salt concentrations, or both, in the soil water.
