Description The application of mathematical models incorporating water flow theory to practical hydrologic problems (e.g., runoff, groundwater recharge, irrigation) requires a characterization of soil hydraulic properties. Such properties may vary widely over land areas of practical interest so that many measurements may be required for adequate soil characterization; thus, the methods used must be relatively rapid and economical. Field methods which have been successfully used in Hawaii to measure the...
