Soil water retention characteristic is an important property of soil. Indirect estimation of this property using easily measurable soil properties remains the research focus of many soil scientists. In this study, a general approach was proposed to derive soil water retention characteristic from soil particle-size distribution and bulk density using a non-similar media concept. Effectiveness of the developed model was tested against measured water retention data of 130 sieved soils with… CONTINUE READING
