Characterization of grain-size distribution, thermal conductivity, and gas diffusivity in variably saturated binary sand mixtures
(Soil Science Society of America on behalf of Geological Society of America, 2018)
Characterization of differently textured porous materials, as well as different volumetric porous media mixtures, in relation to mass and heat transport is vital for many engineering and research applications. Functional ...
Ode to soil
(Lincoln University. Department of Soil and Physical Sciences., 2012-01)
Water and soil are the "twin pillars" supporting life on the land. Buchan (1996) reviewed the many "talents" (wonder properties) of water. This paper reviews: a) the remarkable talents and natural functions of soil - a ...
Modeling soil processes: Review, key challenges, and new perspectives
(Soil Science Society of America, 2016-05-13)
The remarkable complexity of soil and its importance to a wide range of ecosystem services presents major challenges to the modeling of soil processes. Although major progress in soil models has occurred in the last decades, ...
Finger flow development in layered water-repellent soils
(Soil Science Society of America and the Geological Society of America, 2018-05-03)
Finger flow in water-repellent (WR) soils influences the transport of water, solutes in soil significantly, but the mechanics of finger flow occurrence in layered WR soils is not clear. Soil chamber infiltration experiments ...
Water movement and finger flow characterization in homogeneous water-repellent soils
(Soil Science Society of America, 2018-11-01)
Soil water repellency (SWR) is a widespread property in soils around the world. It influences soil water movement and causes unstable flow. The mechanics of finger flow occurrence in water-repellent soils are not clearly ...
