Abstract: Field infiltration experiments at several locations in two sand dune areas in Saudi Arabia were conducted. Results of these field tests are compared with predictions of the Green and Ampt approach. Two sets of infiltration tests in the two areas that were performed under different initial moisture contents are also presented. Infiltration characteristics of the sand dunes in the two regions are also discussed.
