Soil solutions

  • Development of Pedotransfer Functions in Soil Hydrologyby Y. Pachepsky; W.J. Rawls

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 260.00

    Environmental and agricultural modeling and assessment have a multitude of uses for soil parameters governing retention and transport of water and chemicals in soils. These parameters are notorious for the difficulties and high labor costs involved in measuring them. Good estimates instead of direct measurements may be accurate enough for many applications.... more...

  • Functional Approach to Nonlinear Models of Water Flow in Soilsby Gabriela Marinoschi

    Springer 2006; US$ 119.00

    A work of applied mathematics, which focuses on the functional study of the nonlinear boundary value problems relating to water flow in porous media. This volume deals with diffusion type models and emphasizes the mathematical treatment of their nonlinear aspects. more...

  • Grid Computingby Sergei Gorlatch; Thierry Priol; Paraskevi Frangopoulou

    Springer 2008; US$ 169.00

    Grid Computing: Achievements and Prospects, the 9th edited volume of the CoreGRID series, includes selected papers from the CoreGRID Integration Workshop, held April 2008 in Heraklion-Crete, Greece. This event brings together representatives of the academic and industrial communities performing Grid research in Europe. The workshop was organized in... more...

  • Modelling Water and Nutrient Dynamics in Soil-crop Systemsby K.Ch. Kersebaum; Jens-Martin Hecker; W. Mirschel; Martin Wegehenkel

    Springer 2007; US$ 219.00

    Contains articles from a workshop on "Modelling water and nutrient dynamics in crop-soil systems". This book provides data sets from lysimeters and experimental fields of multiyear crop rotations. It describes the applications of 18 different modelling approaches describing soil-crop-atmosphere interactions for water, nitrogen and carbon... more...

  • Parallel Coordinatesby D. Russo

    Springer 2009; US$ 79.95

    This is one book that can genuinely be said to be straight from the horse?s mouth. Written by the originator of the technique, it examines parallel coordinates as the leading methodology for multidimensional visualization. Starting from geometric foundations, this is the first systematic and rigorous exposition of the methodology's mathematical... more...

  • Soil Hydrology, Land Use and Agricultureby Manoj K. Shukla

    CABI 2011; US$ 180.00

    Agriculture is strongly affected by changes in soil hydrology as well as changes in land use and management practices and the complex interactions between them. This book aims to develop an understanding of these interactions on a watershed scale, using soil hydrology models and addresses the consequences of land use and management changes on agriculture... more...

  • Soil Liquid Phase Compositionby V.V. Snakin; A.A. Prisyazhnaya; E. Kovács-Láng

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 235.00

    The liquid phase of soil (soil solution) is a very thin, penetrating and all-embracing water layer. It has the most extensive surface among the biosphere components and interacts with all these components. Presented in this work is a new complex approach developed for soil liquid phase investigation that is based on in situ measurements. Investigation... more...

  • Soil Water Dynamicsby Arthur W. Warrick

    Oxford University Press, USA 2003; US$ 139.99

    Symbols and Abbreviations. 1. The Soil System. 2. Soil Water Flow. 3. Saturated Flow. 4. One-Dimensional Absorption. 5. One-Dimensional Infiltration and Vertical Flow. 6. Multidimensional Water Flow in Variably Saturated Soils. 7. Solute and Contaminant Transport. References. Index more...

  • Soil Water Repellencyby C.J. Ritsema; L.W. Dekker

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 285.00

    It has become clear that soil water repellency is much more wide-spread than formerly thought. Water repellency has been reported in most continents of the world for varying land uses and climatic conditions. Soil water repellency often leads to severe runoff and erosion, rapid leaching of surface-applied agrichemicals, and losses of water and nutrient... more...

  • Soil-Water-Solute Process Characterizationby Javier Alvarez-Benedi; Rafael Munoz-Carpena

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 262.00

    The practitioner or researcher often faces complex alternatives when selecting a method to characterize properties governing a soil process. After years of research and development, environmental and agricultural professionals now have an array of methods for characterizing soil processes. Well-established methods, however, may not be suitable for... more...
