Water Retention and Flow in Soils

  • A. Hadas
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 5)

Abstract

Soil water is subjected to various forces originated by the gravitational pull of the earth, the presence of solutes in the soil water, or the interaction between water contained in the soil’s pores and the walls of these pores. These forces, acting on the soil water or water brought in contact with the soil, cause the water to be adsorbed, retained, transferred, drained, evaporated, or transpired to the atmosphere.
