Book Description :

Hydropedology is a microcosm for what is happening in Soil Science. Once a staid discipline found in schools of agriculture devoted to increasing crop yield, soil science is transforming itself into an interdisciplinary mulch with great significance not only for food production but also climate change, ecology, preservation of natural resources, forestry, and carbon sequestration. Hydropedology brings together pedology (soil characteristics) with hydrology (movement of water) to understand and achieve the goals now associated with modern soil science. The first book of its kind in the market Highly interdisciplinary, involving new thinking and synergistic approaches Stimulating case studies demonstrate the need for hydropedology in various practical applications Future directions and new approaches are present to advance this emerging interdisciplinary science

Book Description :

Hydropedology is the study of how soil morphology and stratigraphy influence hydrologic processes, which is particularly relevant at the hillslope scale, where soil stratigraphy and spatial variability can exert first-order control on the hydrologic flowpaths. Understanding soil stratigraphy and its influence on hydrologic connectivity and streamflow generation has implications for water resource sustainability, water quality and other ecosystem services. An oak-woodland research catchment in the Sierra Foothills provided a unique opportunity to investigate the relationships between soil stratigraphy and hydrologic connectivity. Within the research catchment a hillslope was instrumented for hydrologic monitoring between February and June in 2012. Once dry, the hillslope was trenched, surveyed and sampled. The hydrologic monitoring data and soil characterization data from the trench were combined to constrain a 2D hydrologic model of the hillslope. The objectives of the hillslope study were to 1) identify and characterize hydrologically significant soil properties; 2) explore how soil stratigraphy and morphology influence hydrologic connectivity; and 3) examine potential causes for connection and disconnection of hydrologic flowpaths during and between rain storm events. What we found was a very complex story. The hillslope stratigraphy consisted of a homogeneous and continuous permeable surface horizon, a continuous but variable subsurface transition soil zone, and a discontinuous impermeable claypan. The trench also revealed highly variable weathered bedrock and irregular surface topography of the hard bedrock. Our field measurements and model results were consistent in demonstrating that both the claypan and bedrock topography are important factors in hillslope hydrology and hydrologic connectivity with respect to streamflow dynamics. The primary hydrologic flowpath feeding peak streamflows was found to be rapid subsurface lateral flow in the permeable surface horizon. Further investigation on the hydrologic role of the varied weathered bedrock would greatly improve our understanding of hillslope and catchment scale hydrology in the Northern Sierra Foothills.

Book Description :

The results of this study suggest that spatial variation in soil composition and lateral soil formation should be considered when predicting catchment parameters. Also, each HPU has unique chemical and morphological characteristics and water table regimes. Seeps are different from the rest of the catchment and can act as hot spots for reactive elements. This information will be useful in predicting spatial patterns in biogeochemical functions such as carbon sequestration, denitrification and nutrient availability, or in predicting variations in headwater stream chemistry.

Book Description :

The book presents a comprehensive study of the percolation of water from surface runoff with a focus on the retention capacity and intensity of precipitation. Discussing the state of the art in scientific knowledge and solutions for the infiltration of water from surface runoff, the book addresses a wide variety of rainwater management issues, from precipitation, surface runoff and water infiltration, to impact on the drainage system. Although modern urban hydrology has improved the management of rainwater runoff for flood protection, public health, and environmental protection, current methods of drainage in urban areas mean that there is a continued threat to the regime of water flow and water resources. In this context, the book presents a new approach to rainwater management based on a unique fusion of hydrology, hydrogeology, urban engineering, and water management. It also includes research findings that are helpful in developing recommendations and technical guidelines for the use of infiltration systems in urban areas.

Book Description :

Evapotranspiration and its components (evaporation and transpiration) as a process is one of the basic terms of Earth's water balance; its importance is accented by the fact that transpiration is the vital element of the biomass production process. The second important property of evapotranspiration is its extreme consumption of solar energy, thus controlling the temperature of the atmosphere and creating favourable conditions for life. Evapotranspiration as an energy consuming process is also the connection between the energy and mass cycles of the Earth. Evapotranspiration is a process performing in the Soil–Plant –Atmosphere System (SPAS); therefore this book is presenting and quantifying it as a catenary process, describing transport of water in the soil, including root extraction patterns and methods of its evaluation. Transport of water through the plant and from the canopy to the atmosphere is also described and quantified. A variety of evapotranspiration (and its components evaporation and transpiration) calculation methods are described, starting from empirical methods up to the most sophisticated ones based on the solution of the transport equations of water and energy in the SPAS. The most important (and widely used) calculation method - modified Penman–Monteith method is described in details, ready to be used with data in the book only. Water balance method of evapotranspiration estimation as well as sap flow method description can be found in the book as well. The book can be used by hydrologists, biologists, meteorologists and other specialists as well as by ecology students. Key themes: soil hydrology – evapotranspiration – hydropedology– plant physiology – water movement in soils – evaporation – transpiration Dr. Viliam Novák is a water resources scientist at the Institute of Hydrology of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava (Slovakia).

Book Description :

An evolving, living organic/inorganic covering, soil is in dynamic equilibrium with the atmosphere above, the biosphere within, and the geology below. It acts as an anchor for roots, a purveyor of water and nutrients, a residence for a vast community of microorganisms and animals, a sanitizer of the environment, and a source of raw materials for construction and manufacturing. To develop lasting solutions to the challenges of balanced use and stewardship of the Earth, we require a fundamental understanding of soil—from its elastic, porous three-phase system to its components, processes, and reactions. Handbook of Soil Sciences: Properties and Processes, Second Edition is the first of two volumes that form a comprehensive reference on the discipline of soil science. Completely revised and updated to reflect the current state of knowledge, this volume covers the traditional areas of soil science: soil physics, soil chemistry, soil mineralogy, soil biology and biochemistry, and pedology. Contributors discuss the application of physical principles to characterize the soil system and mass and energy transport processes within the critical zone. They present significant advances in soil chemistry; describe how minerals are formed and transformed; and provide an introduction to the soil biota. They also examine geomorphology, land use, hydropedology, and subaqueous soils as well as the classification and digital mapping of soil. Critical elements addressed in each section include: Descriptions of concepts and theories Definitions, approaches, methodologies, and procedures Data in tabular and figure format Extensive references This cohesive handbook provides a thorough understanding of soil science principles and practices based on a rigorous, complete, and up-to-date treatment of the subject matter compiled by leading scientists. It is a resource rich in data, offering professional soil scientists, agronomists, engineers, ecologists, biologists, naturalists, and students their first point of entry into a particular aspect of the soil sciences.
