    '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 Uncertainties in major input variables in water and solute models were quantified and their effects on simulated functional aspects of soil behaviour were studied using basic soil properties from an important soil map unit in the Netherlands. Two sources of uncertainty were studied: spatial variability of basic soil properties, and the use of pedotransfer functions to predict soil hydraulic functions. Depending on the type of process studied, variability of basic soil properties explained between 40 and 99.9% of the total variance. Uncertainty of pedotransfer functions is of importance mainly when physical soil behaviour (e.g. workable days and aeration status) is studied.
