BIMoS Day "Measuring and modelling the porous structure soils"

by Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Vogel (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ)

December 10, 2019 (16:15 - 18:00)

The functioning of soil depends on its porous structure. This is obviously true for the flow and transport of water and solutes within the soil pore space but also for the activity of highly diverse biological communities living there. A challenge in soil science is to relate soil functioning to the complex structure of the pore space. During the last decades new technologies, as e.g. X-ray tomography, helped to make soil transparent, so that the 3D structure of pores and solid became accessible for more detailed analysis. A critical further step is to translate the obtained 3D images into quantitative descriptions as a prerequisite for scientific evaluation. This means to condense the observed complexity to a reduced but meaningful set of numbers containing sufficient information to predict soil functions as e.g. water flow and solute transport.    

In this lecture we present such quantitative tools starting from image processing and image segmentation. Then we present mathematical approaches to quantify important measures such as pore size distribution, pore surface density and pore topology. The latter describes pore connectivity which is of special importance to flow and transport in soil. This concept is extended from the pore scale to the continuum scale where heterogeneities in soil bulk density and hydraulic properties are considered. Finally, we present some examples how complex soil structures can be modelled based on selected metric and topological descriptors.
