Merging Measurements and Modeling in Soil Physics (2016)

ECTS credits:

Course parameters:
Language: English
Level of course: PhD course (but we reserve a few seat for MSc students)
Semester/quarter: Q3 2016 (19 - 25 September 2016)
Hours per week: 1 week with long and intensive days
Capacity limits: 21 participants

Objectives of the course:
This course will present accepted and emerging concepts of key processes of water flow in unsaturated porous media. These concepts will be presented together with standard and novel methods to make the measurements necessary to describe these processes. The focus of the course is the need for a unified treatment of measurement and modelling in quantitative soil physics. Specifically, we will discuss how advancements in our understanding of soil physics should guide the design of measurement and monitoring efforts. Similarly, we will discuss how the interpretation of measurements made with emerging indirect methods should be made in the context of the soil physical model of interest.

Name of lecturers:
Professors Ty Ferré and Markus Tuller, University of Arizona, Professor Per Moldrup, Aalborg University, and Professors Lis Wollesen de Jonge and Bo Vangsø Iversen, Aarhus University
