Description Oxic soils on Oahu were studied to develop and test simplified methods of determining the hydraulic conductivity of unsaturated soils, to test some simple infiltration models, and to assess the utility of soil survey mapped units in defining hydrologically similar soils. Field measurements of water infiltration and redistribution were accomplished on 21 sites located on the Lahaina, Molokai, and Wahiawa soil series. Water retention curves measured on undisturbed soil cores from the Ap1, Ap2,...
