[Abstract] The spatial structure of gravel content and three textural fractions (sand, silt, clay) was investigated in a 19.8 ha mixed, agricultural and forest catchment through of geostatistical techniques. Three different depths (0-15 cm, 15-30 cm and 30-45 cm) were sampled in order to describe the spatial variability from 0 to about 300 m. It was shown a spatial structure for all the studied variables, which could be described by different types of semivariograms (sphericals,exponentials an gaussians) with nugget effect component and a spatial component ranging from 3,5 to 365 m. Maps were performed using the information contained in the semivariograms by block kriging, so that contour maps were drawn for the different texture fractions and also showing the kriging errors. It was found greater spatial dependence of the studied variables in the first 15 cm than in the other depths.
