      Understanding Preferential Flow in the Vadose Zone: Recent Advances and Future Prospects
      Core Ideas
      • Understanding of preferential flow is improving, stimulated partly by new technologies.
      • Empirical process understanding has outstripped the capability of models to predict.
      • Better models must await future advances in computational power.

      Hydropedology and the Societal Challenge of Realizing the 2015 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
      Core Ideas
      • The UN Sustainable Development Goals present a guiding principle for hydropedology.
      • Hydropedology is potentially more effective than the separate disciplines.
      • Pedologists should better support their observations with physical measurements.
      • Measuring and interpreting bypass flow may be more effective than developing new theory.
      • Existing soil databases can’t provide a full picture of soil behavior in the field.

      Processes and Modeling of Initial Soil and Landscape Development: A Review
      Core Ideas
      • The dynamic initial development phase of landscapes requires a novel modeling approach.
      • The approach needs to incorporate the key factors of initial ecohydrological processes.
      • Key factors are: primary structure, erosion, deposition, crusting, plant succession.
      • Ecohydrological functional units may be derived from modellng and observations.
      • From their behavior, general conclusions may be drawn on early system evolution.

      Modeling Copper and Cadmium Mobility in an Albeluvisol Amended with Urban Waste Composts
      Core Ideas
      • Mobility of Cu and Cd in compost-amended soil was estimated using HYDRUS-2D.
      • Cu and Cd mobility was controlled by sorption in the tilled layer.
      • Different sorption estimations were used to model trace metal leaching.
      • EDTA/CaCl2 extracts ratio gave reliable Kd estimates for Cu but not for Cd.
      • Most of the Cu and Cd mass remained in the tilled layer.
