Summary

The basics of hydrology are studied. Hydrological balance, hydrological variables measurement methods, statistical and graphical processing. Furthermore, the study concentrates on soil forming factors, physical characteristics and soil chemistry, agrochemical properties, soil water, hydrostatics and hydrodynamics of soil water, soil taxonomy system. Finally, attention is paid to the groundwater flow and soil water regime.

Hydrological balance of groundwater. Underground runoff component. Review of methods for determining the groundwater flow. • Pedogenesis (pedogenic factors - substrate, climate, organisms, topography, groundwater, human activity, time), partial pedogenic processes - erosion, humus, peat, translocation and accumulation). • Physical characteristic of soil (soil structure, soil porosity, soil water, soil air, soil temperature regime). Chemistry of soil and agrochemical properties of soil. • Soil taxonomy (soil profile and characteristics of soil horizons). Soil types. • Hydropedology: Characteristics of soil water. Soil water potential. Measurement of soil moisture. Thermodynamics of soil water. • Soil water flow (saturation, filtration coefficient, infiltration).
