SOIL 458: Soil Physical Determinations
Soil Physical Determinations Crosslisted as AGRO 458/858, NRES 458/858
Capstone course. Lab 3, plus 3 hrs arr. Grad students in NRES/AGRO 458/858 or SOIL 458 are expected to carry out an independent project and give an oral report.
Survey of measurement techniques and principles used in characterizing the physical properties of soils. Includes analysis of experimental design and sources of experimental error. Techniques include: particle size analysis, soil water content, pore size analysis, field sampling techniques, soil strength, and saturated hydraulic conductivity.
