Summary

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 variability

    Building 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.
