      A Simple Representation of Plant Water Storage Effects in Coupled Soil Water Flow and Transpiration Stream Modeling
      Core Ideas
      • A previous soil water flow model was extended to allow simulation of transient plant water storage.
      • Comparison with measured Norway spruce sap flow data indicates improved model performance.
      • The proposed algorithm can be easily incorporated into existing soil water flow models.

      Evaluating the Relative Importance of Shallow Subsurface Flow in a Prairie Landscape
      Core Ideas
      • Contrary to established theories, vadose water contributes considerably to Canadian Prairie stormflow.
      • Travel velocities of subsurface flow may exceed surface flow in some cases.
      • Traqnsmissivity feedback and macropore flow promote “old” water deliveryto Prairie streams.

      Patterns of Benthic Fauna Distribution in Wells: The Role of Anthropogenic Impact and Geology
      Core Ideas
      • Geology does not seem to influence fauna composition in the studied wells.
      • Water chemistry does not differ significantly in wells placed on limestone and flysch.
      • Water pollution affects the abundance and diversity of wells fauna.
      • Fauna distribution depends mainly on depth and age of the wells.
      • Surface water fauna prevail; only three stygobiontic species were found.

      Derivation and Validation of a New Soil Pore-Structure-Dependent Flux–Saturation Relationship
      Core Ideas
      • A soil pore-structure-dependent soil water flux–saturation relationship F(Θ) was derived.
      • This F(Θ) depends on the shape coefficient of soil water retention curve and initial saturation.
      • This F(Θ) is simple and accurate for constant-saturation infiltration and absorption.

      Size-Dependent Turbidimetric Quantification of Suspended Soil Colloids
      Core Ideas
      • An efficient turbidimetric method was developed to quantify colloids in aqueous samples.
      • Concentration–turbidity correlations depend primarily on particle size rather than composition.
      • The size-dependent correlations have practical and nearly universal applicability.
      • This method allows accurate and quick colloid quantification in field samples.

      Analysis of the Hysteretic Hydraulic Properties of Unsaturated Soil
      Core Ideas
      • We devised a setup to measure hydraulic properties using the multistep flux method.
      • Results showed good agreement with the data obtained with the hanging water column.
      • However, they deviated slightly from independent data obtained with the HYPROP.
