A new module for root growth in macropores

Magdalena Landl (PhD student at FZ-Juelich, Germany) has added a new module in R-SWMS to simulate root growth, water and nutrient uptake in macropores. Qualitative and quantitative comparisons between simulated and experimentally observed root systems showed good agreement, suggesting that the drawn analogy between soil water flow and root growth is a useful one.
