Abstract

This chapter has shown that it is possible to develop both PTFs and PTRs to predict soil hydraulic properties and soil hydrological functioning from soil morphology including soil structure. By doing so, a considerable volume of soil morphological data residing in national and regional databases could be of great use in providing information on soil hydrology. However, while there is scope for further developments, this may require an acceptance of both standardized methodologies to describe and quantify soil morphological attributes and to measure soil hydraulic properties in the field.
