- ... Statistical analysis and interpretation of heterogeneous sediment hydraulic properties is important to produce reliable forecasts of water and solute transport dynamics in the unsaturated zone. Most field characterizations to date have focused on the shallow 2-m root zone. We characterized the geologic and hydraulic properties of a 16-m-deep, alluvial vadose zone consisting of unconsolidated sedim ...
