Hello Everyone,
I am to model available water capacity for my study area using one of WEAP's in-build pedotransfer functions. I am to use soil properties from Harmonized World Soil Database where properties are giving for subsoil (0-30 cm) and topsoil (30-100 cm). which criteria should I use for selecting either to use subsoil or topsoil properties?
2. For the thickness of the soil, what should I use please? should I use 30 cm (0.3 m)if I am considering top soil and 100 cm (1.0 m) when considering sub-soil?
Thank you
