The approach uses the ECa-directed soil sampling protocols developed by Corwin and Lesch (2003, 2005, 2013) and the stream-tube approach of Corwin et al. (1999) as a basis for delineating stream tubes used in the spatial parameterization of field-scale functional and mechanistic solute transport models. Once stream tubes are defined using the geometric mean and ratio of horizontal and vertical coil configuration measurements with the Geonics EM38, randomly selected sites within each stream tube will be chosen for parameterization. At the selected sites physical and chemical parameters will be determined for a selected solute transport model, such as UNSATCHEM or TETrans.
