Short summary
Quantification of rapid flow of water and associated transport of contaminants through large soil pores generated by earthworms or decaying plant roots is of crucial importance for sustaining both soil and water quality. Advanced visualization and analysis techniques based on state-of-the-art X-ray computed tomography have been applied to 65 soil cores extracted from an agricultural field in Silstrup, Denmark, to improve models for the prediction of fast, preferential flow processes in soils.
