Soil physics


Dr. Jones' research focus is on soil physics. Soil physics address physical properties and processes of soil and porous medium systems. Properties such as texture, structure, density, surface area, and aggregate stability are addressed along with water-content and potential leading to the water retention character of soil. Processes involving transport of heat, solutes, gasses and of course water are characterized and modeled.
