Data for: "Fungal-induced Water Repellency in Sand"

Dataset

Description

Description of data presented in .csv files:

Fig. 2: Evolution of contact angle with growth duration. Levels of water repellency are shown based on classification presented in Table 2.

Fig 3: Influence of initial degree of saturation on water drop penetration time. Levels of water repellency are shown based on classification presented in Table 2.

Fig. 5: Assessment of water repellency for treated soil specimens subjected to mixing every 48hrs to disrupt fungal growth up to 20 days: (a) Contact angle and (b) Water drop penetration time. The dashed vertical lines indicate days on which specimen. The dashed vertical lines indicate days on which specimens were mixed. The arrows show that the initially extreme WR exhibited by specimens (black symbols) was completely lost immediately after mixing on the 6th day.
