Duan Zhenghu. Effect, Status Quo and Development Orientation of Soil Water Research in the Eco-hydrological Processes of Catchment[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2008, 23(7): 682-684.
The effect of soil water on ecosystem and the development of human society was expounded. The transition and development course of soil water research, from morphology to energetics, recent research status of soil water resources, and measure method and some problems of soil water research were discussed. On this basis, some principal aspects of research on catchment soil water in future: the measure and dynamic monitoring of soil water content, the balance and cycle of soil water, the research on the relationship of soil water and ecosystem, and the construction and perfecting of forecasting model of the catchment soil water, were proposed.
