Product description

Review

This book aims to provide solutions to problems in soil physics through original programs written in the programming language Python. (David L. Hawksworth, Biodiversity and Conservation)

... the authors have rendered an extremely valuable service to the soil physics community with the publication of this nicely written and appealingly presented text, which I wholeheartedly recommend to soil physics students of all ages ... great book. (Philippe C. Baveye, Vadose Zone Journal)

The combination of theory and computer code make this a unique text and reference book for experienced scientists and students alike. (Markus Flury, Professor of Soil Physics and Vadose Zone Hydrology, Washington State University, USA)

Soil Physics with Python puts a wealth of knowledge about the quantitative functioning of a key environmental system, soils, into the reader's hand. This knowledge is readily operational through the provided code for the widely used open source language Python. The solutions cover a range of important processes, including the transfer of water, solutes, heat, and gases within soils as well as the soil-atmosphere coupling. Maybe most importantly, they entice the reader to expand and adapt the provided solutions and thereby capacitate him or her to implement and independently explore concepts of the still challenging soil physical processes. (Kurt Roth, Institute of Environmental Physics, Heidelberg University, Germany)

...Overall, I believe that the authors have rendered an extremely valuable service to the soil physics community with the publication of this nicely written and appealingly presented text, which I wholeheartedly recommend to soil physics students of all ages. I will definitely not hesitate to use it as a textbook in my own courses. If this great book were adopted widely, it would help train a new generation of soil physicists armed with a very solid understanding of what it really means to use computers to describe soil physical processes, and who would not be at the mercy of commercial software developers to satisfy their computational needs. At this stage, soil physics desperately needs such skilled people to move forward. (Professor Philippe Baveye, AgroParisTech, Paris)
