Pachepsky (b), Harry Vereecken (c), Horst Hardelauf (c), Michael Herbst (c), Karl Vanderlinden (d) Keywords: Soil water content; Temporal stability; Simulations; Local controls; Saturated hydraulic conductivity Abstract: a* We simulated soil water flow in bare and grassed soil columns of three textures. a* Typical features of soil water temporal stability were recovered in simulations. a* Simulated duration and season affected the temporal stability of soil water contents. a* Spatio-temporal variations in soil water correlated with soil hydraulic conductivity.
