      A TDR Array Probe for Monitoring Near-Surface Soil Moisture Distribution
      Core Ideas
      • A TDR array has been developed for soil moisture profiling.
      • The sensor provides eight incremental measurements at centimeter-depth resolution.
      • Permittivity, evaporation rate, and soil moisture profile were determined.

      Long-Term Soil Structure Observatory for Monitoring Post-Compaction Evolution of Soil Structure
      Core Ideas
      • We provide long-term data on soil structure evolution following compaction.
      • Treatments with and without plants and with and without tillage are included.
      • Monitoring includes soil physical and biological properties and crop measures.
      • Compaction decreased fluid transport capability and increased mechanical impedance.

      Porous Media Characterization to Simulate Water and Heat Transport through Green Roof Substrates
      Core Ideas
      • Hydrodynamic and thermal properties of five green roof substrates were determined.
      • Coupled heat and water transport in a hypothetical roof was simulated.
      • The green roof substrates showed a large capacity to store and transport water.
      • Water retention, storage, and organic matter control substrate hydraulic behavior.

      Critical Role of Preferential Flow in Field-Scale Pathogen Transport and Retention
      Core Ideas
      • A stochastic stream tube model was extended to simulate field-scale pathogen transport and fate.
      • Single- or dual-permeability versions of the model were developed that included filtration theory.
      • Pathogen transport and fate are highly dependent on the field-scale velocity distribution.
      • Physical nonequilibrium effects are coupled with retention, the velocity PDF, and exchange.

      Crystallization Inhibitors and Their Remediation Potential on Brine-Contaminated Soils
      Core Ideas
      • Brine-contaminated soils require remediation in many oil-producing regions.
      • A crystallization inhibitor induced harvestable salt efflorescence on contaminated soils.
      • Crystallization inhibitors can be part of the remediation effort on brine-contaminated soils.

      Comparison of Soil Water Potential Sensors: A Drying Experiment
      Core Ideas
      • In situ water retention curve is key to capture the dynamics of root zone functions.
      • Some of the water potential probes can cover a wide range of water potential levels.
      • The potential probes ability to capture an in situ retention curve is tested.
