(Soil Moisture And Runoff)

Answer each of these questions on a sheet of paper. Do this experiment with different types of soils. Try sandy soil, soil that has plants, etc. Make sure the soils you use are all dried the same amount before beginning the experiment. Through which types of soil does the water "percolate" slowest? Why?

Soil will hold most of the water added to it until it is "saturated." The soil will release water at the same it is added after saturation is reached. Use the concept of saturation to describe how streams are formed.
