Abstract

Fluorescent dyes have been used to label rainfall infiltrating into a well-structured calcareous woodland soil in situ. Soil-water outflow was monitored using throughflow troughs. The occurrence of dye output from the soil could not be totally predicted by the use of a simple storage model but was related to the occurrence of intense-rainfall events equal to or greater than 3 mm hr.-1 lasting for at least 2 hr.
