9780123869418: Hydropedology: Synergistic Integration of Soil Science and Hydrology

Hydropedology is a microcosm for what is happening in Soil Science. Once a staid discipline found in schools of agriculture devoted to increasing crop yield, soil science is transforming itself into an interdisciplinary mulch with great significance not only for food production but also climate change, ecology, preservation of natural resources, forestry, and carbon sequestration. Hydropedology brings together pedology (soil characteristics) with hydrology (movement of water) to understand and achieve the goals now associated with modern soil science.

  • The first book of its kind in the market
  • Highly interdisciplinary, involving new thinking and synergistic approaches
  • Stimulating case studies demonstrate the need for hydropedology in various practical applications
  • Future directions and new approaches are present to advance this emerging interdisciplinary science

From the Back Cover:

Hydropedology is an emerging interdisciplinary science that integrates soil science and hydrology, along with other related bio- and geosciences. It embraces a holistic study of complex landscape-soil-water--vegetation relationships across space and time. Hydropedology provides new perspectives to monitor, map, model, and manage precious soil and water resources. This book calls for a new era of soil research to improve the understanding and quantification of soil architecture across scales and its links to soil functions. It also emphasizes in situ soils in the landscape, where distinct pedogenic features, environmental variables, and anthropogenic impacts interact and determine the storages and fluxes of energy and mass in the real world.

Hydropedology is written for researchers, educators, students, and practitioners who are interested in the interface between pedology, soil physics, hydrology, geomorphology, geology, geophysics, geography, ecology, biogeochemistry, soil biology, and other related sciences. Those in the fields of environmental science, engineering, regulation, policy, and sustainable land use management and planning will find this book relevant to their research and work.

This unique book:

  • Explains the fundamental principles of interactive hydrologic and pedologic processes across space and time.
  • Includes case studies that demonstrate the need for hydropedology in a variety of environments and practical applications.
  • Supports theory and model building for improving predictions and diagnosing problems in complex landscapes across geographic regions.

Henry Lin is a Professor of Hydropedology/Soil Hydrology in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at The Pennsylvania State University, USA. He has been active in hydropedology research and education since 2001 and has served as the founding chair of the Hydropedology Working Group of the Soil Science Society of America and of the International Union of Soil Sciences. He organized and chaired the First International Conference on Hydropedology in 2008. He has published over 100 papers and edited six special issues of various scientific journals related to hydropedology. His research interests include fundamental understanding and practical applications of integrated soil and water sciences, soil architecture and preferential flow across scales, complex systems view of soil formation and soil functions, and the holistic understanding of the Earth's Critical Zone.
