Soil-water interaction at high soil suction
MetadataShow full item record
A substantial amount of research has been done to understand the mechanisms and associated applications of the soil water retention curve (SWRC). However, the SWRC in the range of high matric suction (soil water sorption isotherm) has drawn less attention relative to laboratory and theoretical investigations of the SWRC at low matric suction. The primary goal of this research is to improve the understanding of the fundamental hydration mechanisms at high matric suctions, and to determine the effect of soil properties, such as clay-mineral composition, cation exchange capacity (CEC), and specific ...
