575 Symposium --Measurements and Modeling of Multiphase Flow and Solute Transport: To Honor the Many Contributions of Jacob Dane: I

Oral Session
S01 Soil Physics
This symposium is in honor of the retirement of Dr. Jacob Dane from Auburn University, Alabama. With his many contributions, Jacob and his students have helped to shape and define the field of soil physics in the past few decades. The symposium will present contributions on the modeling, characterization and measurement of flow and transport processes through porous media reflecting Jacob’s philosophy of combining measurement and modeling that have led to major advances in our understanding of flow and transport processes under a broad range of laboratory and field conditions.
