Low evaporation rates from soil caused
solutes in the soil solution to accumulate at the air-water
interface and reduce the vapor pressure. Nearly tenfold
increases in concentration at the interface were
observed with ZnSO₄ in a cool moist soil. CaCll₂, AICI₃,
sucrose, and hexadecanol accumulated to lesser degrees,
depending on the evaporation rate and the temperature.
The small amount of water movement required to
develop this increase suggests the phenomena may also
occur next to semipermeable membranes, such as plant
