"Environmental Soil Physics" is a completely updated and modified edition of the Daniel Hillels previous, successful books, "Introduction to Soil Physics" and "Fundamentals of Soil Physics". Hillel is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, one of the true leaders in the field of environmental sciences.

It updates and expands the scope of Hillel's prior works, "Fundamentals of Soil Physics" (1980) and "Applications of Soil Physics" (1980). It explores the wide range of interactions among the phases in the soil and the dynamic interconnections of the soil with the subterranean and atmospheric domains. It draws attention to historical and contemporary issues concerning the human management of soil and water resources. It directs readers toward solution of practical problems in terrestrial ecology, field-scale hydrology, agronomy, and civil engineering. It incorporates contributions by leading scientists in the areas of spatial variability, soil remediation, and the inclusion of land-surface processes in global climate models.

Review:

"...This text would make a valuable reference book for anyone working with soils in an environment context. The undertaking of this book by the author greatly serves a new age of environmental soil scientist. Environmental awareness is at its highest level ever and it is nice to have a leading scientist in his field cater to pertinent issues. This is a fine example of traditional subject matter being modernized to address current and relevant global issues." --JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY "Hillel offers an authoritative account of the physical properties of soil and its role in both natural and managed ecosystems." --CHOICE
