“Hydropedology is the relatively new, interdisciplinary research field which focuses on the interactive relationship between soils and water. Soil physical properties, such as the hydraulic conductivity and porosity, have an important impact on the occurrence and rates of hydrological processes. In turn, hydrological processes play an important role on the formation of soil morphological properties such as colour, mottles, macropores and carbonate accumulations.”
