2009

Scholarcy highlights

  • a region located in the Aral Sea basin of Uzbekistan
  • water use for irrigation of predominantly cotton is high whereas water use efficiency is low
  • groundwater dynamics were studied on a sandy, sandy loam
  • Results showed that shallow groundwater contributed a substantial share to actual evapotranspiration
  • which alleviated water stress in response to suboptimal quantities of water applied for irrigation
  • Jirka ┼áimunek for his valuable support and discussion on the Hydrus-1D simulations
