Moist or wet soil is associated with relatively high bypass flow due to relatively low infiltration rates in the matrix (see also Fig. 19, with the infiltration rate i , which decreases in time due to wetting of the soil). When studying water movement in soils in the field, we often find that macropores are not vertically continuous.
