Model Development and Application for Saline Water Irrigation in Arid Area in Inner Mongolia


Article Preview

Taken Hongwei test field in the He Tao irrigation area of Inner Mongolia for research example, soil water and salt movement model system in regional unsaturated zone is established and tested, through the method of regional zoning. Detection results indicate that the calculated results from the model system agree well with the measured data. It is concluded that simulating and forecasting soil water and salt movement in regional unsaturated zone with this model system is feasible and authentic.
