... at these sites; chloride has little influence on conductivity, particularly at low water content. Conductivity increases with water content above threshold values of 0.03 to 0.07 g/g at the Eagle Flat, Red Light Bolson, and Hueco Bolson sites. Little correlation exists between water content and conductivity...
