Emphasizing pioneering achievements, this work offers a clear and systematic description of various soil-water phenomena and their applications to soil problems such as water retention and the flux of water in soils and clays. This second edition contains material on the physical properties of adsorbed water, the application of fractal theory to solute and water flows in field soils, fingering research, and more.
". . .breaks out of the common orbit of soil physics monographs. . . . . .Its individuality will add diversity to the libraries both of institutions and of students. "
Energy concept and thermodynamics of water in soil; interaction between soil particles and soil solution; interaction between particles through water; capillary; water flow through soil; unsaturated water movement; field water regimes.
