Hydrologic analyses often involve the evaluation of soil water infiltration, conductivity, storage, and plant-water relationships. To define the hydrologic soil water effects requires estimating soil water characteristics for water potential and hydraulic conductivity using soil variables such as texture, organic matter (OM), and structure. Field or laboratory measurements are difficult, costly, and often impractical for many hydrologic analyses. Statistical correlations between soil texture… 
Developing a Texture-Based Soil Hydrologic Characteristics Model and Extending this Model to Predict Soil Strength Characteristics
Hydrologic models are used to describe water flow patterns in the soil, but there are not many models to describe the influence of soil water on soil mechanical properties. The purpose of this study
Inference of Soil Hydrologic Parameters from Electronic Soil Moisture Records
Soil moisture is an important control on hydrologic function, as it governs vertical fluxes from and to the atmosphere, groundwater recharge and lateral fluxes through the soil. Historically, the

Experimental and statistical study of saturated hydraulic conductivity and relations with other soil properties of a desert soil
Agricultural expansion in the Kharga Oasis, in the western desert of Egypt, depends strongly on irrigation. Soil hydraulic conductivity is therefore a key property for reclaiming desert land and
