A numerical method was used to compute infiltration and redistribution of water in vertical columns of air-dry Grenville silt loam. Hysteresis was taken into account in that drying tensions and hydraulic conductivities were interpolated from the a...

Water was allowed to evaporate from vertical columns of Yolo loam, 100 cm long, for 200 days at ambient temperatures of 10, 20, 30 degrees C +or- 1 degrees C. Distribution of soil water was determined by y-ray attenuation at 5 cm intervals and als...
