Hydropedology and Catchment Processes
Hydropedology is the study of how soils and water interact in the landscape. There are two key questions in hydropedology:
- How do soils exert control on hydrologic processes in space and time
- How does water (and the associated transport of energy, sediment, chemicals, and biomaterials by flowing water) influence the development, properties and functions of soils.
The interaction of soils and water has a profound effect on water quality and it is the study of this interaction that engages the researchers in the Hydropedology & Catchment Processes Program.
