One of the objectives of the author's research programme in soil-geography has been first to determine — at an accelerated rate and in a way suitable for comparisons — the infiltration and runoff fractions of rainwater precipitat-ing onto a sloping soil surface, the dependence on the rate of precipitation and the angle of slope, and then to develop a relevant mapping method.The achievement of these objectives is important for science, planning and agricultural practice alike.
