ENVS 470/570  Soil Physics 

The ENVS 470/570 “Soil Physics course provides the theoretical and practical basis for understanding and quantifying physical and hydrological properties of soils. We focus on hydro-physical processes taking place near the Earth's surface emphasizing mass and energy exchange, and transport processes in saturated and partially-saturated soils at multiple scales. The coupling with the atmosphere and the role of plants in the hydrological cycle will be studied. We will review modern measurement methods and analytical tools for hydrological data collection and interpretation.
