Abstract

The aim of this work was to estimate available soil water capacity (ASWC) based on physical and chemical properties and analyze the spatial distribution of ASWC in China. The pedo-transfer functions (PTFs), derived from 220 survey data of ASWC, and the empirical data of ASWC based on soil texture were applied to quantify the ASWC. GIS technology was used to develop a spatial file of ASWC in China and the spatial distribution of ASWC was also analyzed. The ASWC is different according to the complex soil types and their distribution. It is higher in the east than in the west, and the values reduce from south to north except the northeastern part of China
