Applied Soil Physics

Exam­ine basic phys­i­cal com­po­si­tion and process­es of both the sol­id and liq­uid phas­es of soil. This includes how water is held by soil, how water moves through soil and the link­age between soil water régime and process­es with­in the hydro­log­ic cycle, with empha­sis on water infil­tra­tion and redis­tri­b­u­tion. Oth­er top­ics include soil ther­mal and aer­a­tion prop­er­ties and process­es, impact of spa­tial vari­abil­i­ty and soil mechan­ics. The course will explore applied soil man­age­ment chal­lenges involv­ing the use of soil physics to address agro­nom­ic, envi­ron­men­tal and recla­ma­tion objectives.
