Soil Hydrology, Land Use and AgricultureMeasurement and Modelling
Edited by M Shukla, Associate Professor of Environment Soil Physics, New Mexico State University, USA
Agriculture is strongly affected by changes in soil hydrology as well as by changes in land use and management practices and the complex interactions between them. This book aims to expand our knowledge and understanding of these interactions on a watershed scale, using soil hydrology models, and to address the consequences of land use and management changes on agriculture from a research perspective. Case studies illustrate the impact of land use and management practices on various soil hydrological parameters under different climates and ecosystems.

Shukla I earned a PhD degree from University of Agricultural Sciences Vienna, Austria in a collaborative program with University of California Davis. I was a postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Illinois, a Research Scientist at the Ohio State University, an Assistant and now an Associate Professor of Environmental Soil Physics at the New Mexico State University. I am a recipient of Patricia Christmore Faculty Teaching award, NACTA Teaching award of Merit, and RGBI integrated program team award. I am a member of many professional societies including AAAS, AGU, SSSA, ASABE, etc. I have served as an Associate Editor and Editorial board member of Soil Science Society America Journal and as an Executive Secretary of Indian Association of Hydrologists. Currently I serve on the regional coordination committee for trickle irrigation, member of PES curriculum committee, graduate studies committee, Howard Hughes scholar program, as a mentor to AMP undergrad student, and as an advisor to more than ten undergraduate students. I served as chair for five students graduated with a master's degree from the NMSU. Currently, I serve as a chair for four graduate students and as a committee member for six others. I teach environmental soil physics, advanced soil physics and introductory soils (on-occasion). My research interests are related mostly to soil physics, spatial and temporal variability of soil properties, and water and solute transport under different land use and management systems at multiple scales. I have received over $2 M as research funding from various agencies including a major grant during 2008 from USDA-CSREES ($650K) and DOE ($800K). I have co-authored a text-book "Principles of Soil Physics", published more than 40 peer-reviewed journal articles, several research reports, proceeding papers and book chapters.
