Soil Water Characteristic Estimates by Texture and Organic Matter for Hydrologic Solutions

  title={Soil Water Characteristic Estimates by Texture and Organic Matter for Hydrologic Solutions},
  author={K. E. Saxton and Walter J. Rawls},
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… CONTINUE READING
