How useful are small-scale soil hydraulic property measurements for large-scale vadose zone modeling?

J.W Hopmans, D.R. Nielsen, Keith Bristow

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Environmental Mechanics depicts the state of the science in relation to the soil-plant-atmosphere thermodynamic continuum. Inspired by the path breaking work of John Philip, scientists consider these major areas, and more:* Fundamentals of water movement and solute transport in soils and other porous media. Analytic and numerical analyses of flow and transport processes in rigid and swelling systems.* Analysis of transport processes in the lower atmosphere and in vegetation. * New areas of research.For scientists, researchers, and students of environmental mechanics, hydrology, soil physics, micrometerology, and ecology.
