Résumé
Soil water repellency (SWR) limits water infiltration into soils and consequently adversely affects soil functions globally. Using techniques novel to this scale and problem, mainly electrical resistivity tomography, water movement was monitored in and on water-repellent soil. This thesis describes the interactions between SWR and water focussing on physical and biological factors to improve understanding of this agricultural production-limiting phenomenon and how to overcome it. The results and the methods developed during this research provide a foundation for further study in the area of SWR and the assessment of amelioration treatments.
