Abstract

Abstract

Spatial variability of unsaturated hydraulic conductivity was studied for 40 ha of Pima clay loam. Calculations of hydraulic conductivity were based on the moisture release data using a modified Millington-Quirk equation. One standard deviation to either side of the average moisture release curve resulted in a 20 to 30% variation in the unsaturated hydraulic conductivity. This offers a relatively quick and easy method for estimating variability of unsaturated hydraulic conductivity variation from pressure head vs. moisture relations. Input needed for application: moisture release relations and their variances.
