Abstract: Non-point source pollution from agricultural runoff is an important environmental problem. This experimental study considers the effect of media heterogeneity on the entrainment of interstitial water into overland flow. The results are presented in the form of an empirical equation expressing the one-dimensional diffusion coefficient in terms of relevant flow and soil parameters.
