Synonym of Macropores

English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Macropore
In soil, macropores are defined as cavities that are larger than 75 µm. Functionally, of this size host preferential soil solution flow and rapid transport of solutes and colloids. Macropores increase the hydraulic conductivity of soil, allowing water to infiltrate and drain quickly, and shallow groundwater to move relatively rapidly via lateral flow. In soil, macropores are created by plant roots, soil cracks, soil fauna, and by aggregation of soil particles into peds.
