About this book

An authoritative reference on soil physics, Soil Physics Companion is lavishly illustrated with graphs, charts, line drawings, and equations. The book provides a valuable source of material and reference for most contemporary topics of soil physics and the vadose zone - arguably the most comprehensive volume available. In addition to being a reliable reference, it is valuable as an advanced text from which topics of interest can be selected by the teacher and student. Topics include: Static and dynamic aspects of soils Transport processes and soil water measurements Movement of soil water in the context of overall water balance and its key role in the hydrologic cycle Energy balance and thermal regime Soil-plant-atmospheric interface Solute transport and soil-gas movement Spatial variabilityBuilding on the work begun in the bestselling Handbook of Soil Science, this reference takes soil physics one step further. Convenient and easy-to-use, it provides in-depth information at your fingertips. When you need easily accessible, readily available facts and theories, you need the Soil Physics Companion.


Contents

Introduction. Dynamic Properties of Soils. Soil Water Content and Water Potential Relationships. Soil Water Movement. Energy and Water Balances at Soil-Plant-Atmosphere Interfaces. Solute Transport. Soil Structure. Soil Gas Movement in Unsaturated Systems. Soil Spatial Variability.
