SoilHyP: Soil Hydraulic Properties

Provides functions for (1) soil water retention and unsaturated hydraulic conductivity (van Genuchten-Mualem (vGM/vG) (van Genuchten (1980) <doi:10.2136/sssaj1980.03615995004400050002x>; Mualem (1976) <doi:10.1029/WR012i003p00513>), Peters-Durner-Iden (PDI) (Peters (2013) <doi:10.1002/wrcr.20548>; Iden and Durner (2013) <doi:10.1002/2014WR015937>; Peters (2014) <doi:10.1002/2014WR015937>)), (2) fitting of parameter for soil water retention (SWC) and/or unsaturated hydraulic conductivity function (Ku) using Shuffled Complex Evolution (SCE) optimisation and (3) calculation of soil hydraulic properties (unsaturated hydraulic conductivities and soil water contents) based on the simplfied evaporation method (SEM) (Peters and Durner (2008) <doi:10.1016/j.jhydrol.2008.04.016>).
