- Soil texture and structure
Solid Phase
Liquid Phase
Gaseous Phase
Some of important values
1. State of water in the soil
Water pressure
Water content
2. State of water in the soil: caracterstical relationships
3. Transfer equation and mass balance

General equations of
flows in soils
The transfer equation determines the flux density at a point.
To describe the phenomenon completely, one must take into account the equation of
continuity which takes into account the conservation of the mass
