Abstract

The authors measured hydraulic conductivity (saturated and unsaturated) on 127 soil cores, which were taken in different horizons of a wide variety of Belgian soil series. The hot air method and the crust method were combined to obtain the complete range of hydraulic conductivity from saturation to air-dry. Regression equations for estimating the Gardner parameters were established from simple soil properties, such as soil texture, carbon content, bulk density. Three parameters can reasonably well be estimated from the textural composition and the saturated hydraulic conductivity
