    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Scientists have developed complex computer models to simulate water and solute movement in the unsaturated and saturated zones. Lack of relevant input data is considered a major obstacle to progress. Therefore, existing databases have been used to derive input data from measured soil data. Pedotransfer functions (PTFs) have been selected for predicting hydraulic and thermal properties using soil texture data. Data from peat and coarse sandy soils for the production of PTFs are still lacking. The PTFshave been programmed in the computer model HERCULES in order to ease the use of the functions.
