We were present at the EGU General Assembly 2017 with the contribution: Saturated hydraulic conductivity as parameter for modeling applications – comparison of determination methods
(Session SSS7.6/HS8.3.11 Soil water infiltration. Measurements, assessment and modeling.)
We showed a side study about the used measurement methods for hydraulic soil conductivity. The first step was a simple comparison of the results. Measurements from different measurement ranges were extrapolated to saturatation state what pointed out that evaporation method results were three orders of magnitude lower than those of hood infiltrometer and falling head lab method.
