Abstract Accurate prediction of hydraulic properties in frozen soils is of importance for the role of frozen soil water dynamics in cold region water cycles. Furthermore, the existence of solute is known to complicate the water, heat and solute transport in frozen soils. To predict hydraulic properties in saline frozen soils more accurately, experiments on soil water characteristic curves (SWCCs) and soil freezing characteristic curves (SFCCs) were conducted under five solute types combined with...

Agricultural ecosystems are important for regulating terrestrial hydrological and carbon cycles. Hydrological and carbon processes in agricultural ecosystem models are complex due to interactions between parameters. It is therefore crucial to identify parameter sensitivity before a process-based model is applied for simulations and predictions of water, energy and carbon fluxes in agricultural ecosystems. In this study, we investigated the sensitivity and equifinality of the CoupModel parameters...

Abstract In cold/arid agricultural regions seasonal freezing/thawing of soils can result in soil salinization in winter; therefore, it is crucial to understand the mechanisms behind soil salinization during winter for better water management in agriculture. In Hetao Irrigation District of Inner Mongolia, northern China, we used the CoupModel (version 5) considering dynamical impacts of salt on soil freezing point to simulate soil salt dynamics and soil freezing/thawing in three winters during 20...

Abstract. Soil freezing/thawing is important for soil hydrology and water management in cold regions. Salt in agricultural field impacts soil freezing/thawing characteristics and therefore soil hydrologic process. In this context, we conducted field experiments on soil water, heat and salt dynamics in two seasonally frozen agricultural regions of northern China to understand influences of salt on cold regions hydrology. We developed CoupModel by implementing impacts of salt on freezing point dep...

Purpose The inappropriate irrigation is accelerating the soil salinization in western irrigation districts of China. The amelioration of salinized land must be based on large amount of water content and salinity data. Plastic coated TDR has been designed to measure water content accurately in highly saline soil, but the soil bulk electrical conductivity cannot be measured due to the coated materials. In order to measure the volumetric water content and bulk electrical conductivity in highly sali...
