Soil Properties

Soil Texture and therefore the related particle-size distribution greatly influences the speed of water flow through soils. This soil property may be a key input parameter altogether hydrologic model. Whole-profile soil properties integrate several soil properties to supply information on soil–water relationships and soil use and management interpretations.  For climate modeling, information on soil water storage is required to predict the quantity of water available for evapotranspiration. DSM products can improve the power to represent these soil properties and deliver better information to hydrologists. There is a transparent interaction between rates of infiltration and precipitation that strongly influences these relationships. Where the infiltration rate is lower than the rate of precipitation, runoff will occur. Runoff are going to be minimal on relatively flat summit positions thanks to their low slope, thus maximizing time for infiltration to occur. These landscape positions are also the most susceptible to erosion by water due to the higher runoff and steeper slopes.  In more arid regions, they'll even be sites for accumulation of soluble salts leached from higher landscape positions. In drier climates, these soils may show the greatest degree of development because they receive the most water. In wetter climates, foot slope and particularly toe slope landscape positions could also be seasonally or permanently saturated. They may even be sites for accumulation of eroded sediments or soluble salts. Often the sola are very thick due to addition of eroded materials.
