Advanced Soil Physics


The course is designed to give the student an in-depth understanding of the soil as a three-phase system (solid, liquid, gas). A basic knowledge of soil science and physics as a discipline is assumed. On this basis, the aim is to provide a quantitative description of soil architecture and the physical processes in the soil pore system. The course will give a fundamental understanding of the methods used to describe soil properties and soil physical processes including those responsible for transport and leaching from the vadose zone to ground water and/or the aquatic environment.
