Roads There are many types of roads from small secondary country roads to large multi-lane motorways. The main criterion placed on a road is that it should be able to transport people and goods in a safe, rapid, economic and comfortable manner. In order to fulfil this, certain demands are placed on . Soil Moisture Variability Across Scales [41] A number of factors affect spatial variability of surface soil moisture content, including precipitation, evapotranspiration, soil texture, topography, vegetation, land use, etc. Each factor exerts a degree of spatial organization on the soil moisture distribution by introducing or removing.

The present status of knowledge concerning thermally induced transport of moisture in soil is reviewed. This includes the various theories on mechanisms of transport and experimental data showing the magnitude of moisture flow in various porous materials. Wherever possible these data were chosen to show the relative importance of thermal versus head-type flow and some general trends are by: AWT have developed the H2KnOw-how Soil Moisture Budget to assist with operating and monitoring the Waihou wastewater land irrigation scheme. This is a comprehensive tool for assisting operational personnel in understanding and interpreting soil moisture information to determine whether irrigation is appropriate and to ensure that the irrigation scheme meets resource consent conditions.

Soil is essential to human survival. We rely on it for the production of food, fibre, timber and energy crops. In addition to supporting our agricultural needs, we rely on the soil to regulate the flow of rainwater and to act as a filter for drinking water. Soil management, or soil conservation. Soil moisture, as well as other climatic features, have been recognized as an important factor in soil genesis and classification. Certain soils occur only in specific climatic zones. The water status of soil continually affects soil properties through its influence on weathering, profile development, friability and permeability (Slatyer, ).

The amount of urea in the soil runoff was higher for soils that had higher moisture content, indicating that urea is better absorbed in drier soil, than in moist. The fate of chemicals in soil can also be analyzed by direct pore water sampling, using a lysimeter, as shown in this example.

The maximum dry density of cement and lime stabilized soils decreases and optimum the moisture content increases when cement/lime content is increased from 0 to 4%.

Similar behaviour was also observed in other research studies in the case of lime, fly ash and rice husk ash stabilized clayey soils (Rahman, ).Cited by: A typical experimental moisture content over the depth of soil is shown in Fig.

As can be shown, the moisture content over the depth of soil was not consistent. The moisture content at surface was maximum, and it varied over the depth of soil. However, the variation in the moisture content of soils among the depth is very limited.

In contrast, in semi-humid catchments with a Mediterranean climate, the influence of topography on soil moisture distribution was more considerable in wetter conditions (Brocca et al., ).

The moisture content of aggregates in the field is much closer to the SSD state than the OD state. The bulk specific gravity (BSG) of aggregates is more accurately determined by the displacement method in the SSD condition. The moisture content can be calculated directly from measurements of (BSG) using the displacement method.

Based on a physical description of the soil, distribution functions of soil moisture content conditioned on the depth to the groundwater table have been developed, both for the patch scale and the catchment scale.

# Elsevier Science B.V. Thanks. We've struggled with some of the traditional measures of soil moisture here. There's two ways to measure two major soil moisture components in soils. The first is gravimetric moisture, where water is just controlled by the gravity and results in a characteristic water table, where you have water not under tension at all, so zero tension.
