The purpose of this study is to investigate the soil hydrodynamic characteristics, i.e. water retention curve and field saturated hydraulic conductivity, at reclaimed agricultural land of Messolonghi polder in Greece (38o 21’ 58” N; 21o 28’ 41” E). The reclaimed Dutch type pilot-polder of Messolonghi was chosen as study area, because of its charact...

Context 1
... study area is located at the region of Western Greece near the city of Messolonghi ( Fig. 1) at the Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece campus and it is most likely dedicated to agriculture since it was reclaimed from the sea during the decade of 1960-1969. Main cultivations constitute from arable crops and some olive and citrus trees. ...

Three variants of model soil constructions were created. Variant 1 (control) is made from Aarable horizon (0-18cm); variant 2 (layered construction) is represented by Aarable horizon (0-6cm), lowland peat (6-12cm), sand (12-18cm); variant 3 is a mixture of Aarable horizon, peat and sand in the same mass proportion as in the layered variant (0-18cm). Water retention capacity of Aarable horizon increased in all variants regardless of the location in the profile. Number of macropores increased and number of mezopores decreased in Aarable horizon of control and layered variants. The greatest number of moisture-saiving pores is observed in the peat-containing layers of variants 2 and 3 as a result of 4-year functioning. The lowest content is in the control in all layers.

This study was conducted to develop the SWCC estimation equation using scaling technique, and to investigate relative sensitivity of the SWCC according to the soil water tension, for the four kinds of soil texture such as Sand [S], Sandy Loam [SL], Loam [L] and Clay Loam [CL]. The SWCC estimation equation of scale factor [{\Theta}sc] (Eq. 1) was developed based on the log function (Eq. 2) and exponential function (Eq. 3). {\Theta}sc=[({\Theta}-{\Theta}r)/({\Theta}s-{\Theta}r)] (Eq. 1) {\Theta}sc=-0.196ln(H) 0.4888 (Eq. 2) {\Theta}sc=0.3804(H)^{(-0.448)} (Eq. 3) where, {\Theta}: water content (g/g %), {\Theta}s: water content at 0.1bar, {\Theta}r: water content at 15bar, H: soil water tension (matric potential) (bar) Relative sensitivity of soil water content was decreased as increase soil water tension, those according to soil water tension were 0.952~0.620 compared to 0.1bar case. Relative sensitivity of scale factor was also decreased as increase soil water tension, those according to soil water tension were 0.890~0.577 compared to 0.2bar case.
