Abstract/Contents:"Knowledge of the soil physical properties are essential for understanding water flow, air movement and solute transport processes. Determination of the spatial variability of soil physical properties can help define critical areas within fairways and determine the most effective management strategies to obtain optimum productivity within a particular soil and climatic condition. Spatial and temporal variability of a soil strongly influences its physical characterization in the field. The objectives of this study were to investigate the spatial variability of unsaturated hydraulic conductivity (Ks), bulk density (BD), soil compaction (SC), volumetric moisture content (VMC), normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), thermal conductivity (K) and volumetric specific heat (VSP) of different soil types on two golf courses in the Southern High Plains of Texas (Lubbock and Amarillo). During 2018-2019, grid soil samples were collected (spaced 10m apart) from each of the two golf courses. Additionally, the spatial variability of soil moisture retention curve (SMRC) parameters in the wet (between saturation 0 and -300 kPa) and dry (between -300 and -1500 kPa) ranges, i.e., saturated, field capacity, wilting point or residual soil moisture contents; and available water holding capacity were evaluated."
