matter, soil water solute content and soil
water tension. Moreover, a natural soilsur-
face consists of an amassment of particles
and aggregates which can seldomly be grouped
in a single particle size class. The optical
properties of an aggregate of unsorted parti
cles, however, closely ressemble those of the
smallest particle size present (Adams and
Filice, 1967, Stoner and Baumgardner, 1980).
Thus, equation 6 could be tested on mineral
mixtures of various particle sizes, using the
smallest particle size significantly present
as the input of particle diameter 0.
