Soil pore size distribution and water characteristics are important for water storage, water movement, and soil-plant interaction studies. Laboratory determinations of water characteristics and pore size distribution are time consuming and costly. Investigators have proposed many models to predict them from routinely available data. Most of the models are related...
The dynamical nature of atmospheric disturbances in
the Southern Hemisphere simulated by a two-level general
circulation (GCM) model is studied. Time series of the
dependent variables and diabatic heating components from
10 Southern Hemisphere winters (JJA) and summers (DJF)
simulated by the Oregon State University two-level GCM are
Agricultural economists have devoted considerable attention to
the financial stress situation of agricultural producers. Many
studies have been conducted in various regions of the U.S. in an
attempt to better understand the causes of the problem. The costs
associated with farm financial stress imply corresponding benefits to
be realized by...
