A New Year's Paradigm for Modeling Soil Water Academic Article uri icon


  • The swelling and shrinkage properties of aggregates within the soil, in concert with the hydrostructural properties are discussed. A systemic process-based approach is presented to characterize and parameterize the soil medium using its volume changes. The approach can be used to accurately define and quantify commonly used agronomic properties. The study demonstrates a unique link between the soil water properties of non-rigid aggregated soils and their internal volume changes.
