>27%=Clay Loam Middle
>difference between % sand and silt, is >10%
Bd=Mass of oven dry soil/ Total volume of soil
Pd= Mass of oven dry soil/Volcume of soil solids
% Pore Space (porosity)
=100% - Bd/Pd * 100
Factors that affect Bd and Pd
Compaction: Up Same
Tillage: Down Same
Organic Matter: Down Down
water movement into soil at surface
water movement through soil
gas movement in the soil
gas, liquid, tree roots, combined
