    Abstract

    Cation exchange capacity of the “whole” soil was one of the properties measured in an investigation of the variation of physical and chemical properties of the Wisconsin loess in southwestern Iowa. The test data of the property variation study affords an unusual opportunity for correlations of cation exchange capacity with some engineering (physical) properties of a natural soil material. Before dealing with the cation exchange capacity of loess and its relation to engineering properties, which are the main subjects of this paper, the origin, distribution, and properties of Wisconsin loess are briefly discussed.
