No soils without water  - no water without soils

The emerging field of Hydropedology is being developed from the need to improve our quantitative understanding of mass and energy fluxes within terrestrial systems, also denoted as the ”Critical Zone“, and to recognize their feedbacks to soil-forming processes.


Scientific advances are being stimulated by the coupling of various disciplines that historically have been separated. Specifically, Soil Science, including pedology, soil physics and soil biogeochemistry, is linked to Hydrology across spatial scales, from the pore to catchment scale. Recent scientific developments in the fields of Geophysics and Remote Sensing have catalyzed integration of the scientific fields.
