How much water and solute (nutrients, pesticides, pathogens) are moving through the soil? These fluxes have have always been hard to quantify. That's why they call it the "black box."
But new precision sensors are transforming traditional methods and opening up all kinds of possibilities. We'll discuss those innovations and examine how new technology is illuminating some of the vadose zone's mysteries. The virtual seminar will cover small-scale controlled tension lysimeters, large scale lysimetery, and static tension wick lysimeters as well as traditional techniques like the zero tension pan lysimeter and water balance residual.
