AbstractInfiltration characteristics of several major soil series in the Beaver Creek drainage of north central Arizona were determined. These characteristics were found to conform closely to infiltration theory and could be related to the physical, chemical and genetic characteristics of the soils by regression analyses. In general, the relationships shown by the analyses were physically meaningful for the condition of the study. The equations developed may be used to estimate the probable maximum capacity of the soils in the Beaver Creek area to absorb water. However, they should be used only for conditions of antecedent moisture similar to those under which the study was made.
