From the Back Cover:

Written by an eminent scientist known for his seminal contributions to the field and for his definitive publications, Environmental Soil Physics is a comprehensive, fundamental, and accessible guide to the physical principles and processes governing the behavior of soil and its vital role in both natural and managed ecosystems. Based on sound theory and practical field experience, the book describes the soil as a central link in the continuous chain that constitutes the terrestrial environment; a medium that generates and sustains life, while serving to recycle waste products. It reveals how the functioning of the soil can be affected-for better or worse-by human action. Environmental Soi Physics defines and describes the dynamic cycles of energy, water, solids, solutes, mineral, gases, and living organisms in the soil. It is self-contained and self-explanatory, with numerous illustrations and sample problems, up-to-date references, and relevance to real-world conditions.
