Reviews

2021.  ” Soil Physics with Python is highly recommended, especially for undergraduate and graduate students who are starting to learn numerical calculus. Mastering this book will require patience and effort, but I guarantee you will be more than rewarded. Furthermore, I hope that the knowledge from this study will be used to create codes and solve new problems. ” Teruhito Miyamoto. Researcher at the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization of Japan. Review (in Japanese) published by the Japanese Society of Soil Physics

 

2016. “…Overall, I believe that the authors have rendered an extremely valuable service to the soil physics community with the publication of this nicely written and appealingly presented text, which I wholeheartedly recommend to soil physics students of all ages. I will definitely not hesitate to use it as a textbook in my own courses. If this great book were adopted widely, it would help train a new generation of soil physicists armed with a very solid understanding of what it really means to use computers to describe soil physical processes, and who would not be at the mercy of commercial software developers to satisfy their computational needs. At this stage, soil physics desperately needs such skilled people to move forward.” Philippe Baveye, Professor, AgroParisTech, Paris. Review of Soil Physics with Python: doi:10.2136/vzj2015.12.0162br

 

2015. “Soil Physics with Python puts a wealth of knowledge about the quantitative functioning of a key environmental system, soils, into the reader’s hand……they entice the reader to expand and adapt the provided solutions and thereby capacitate him or her to implement and independently explore concepts of the still challenging soil physical processes.” Kurt Roth, Professor, Institute of Environmental Physics, University of Heidelberg.

 

2015. “The combination of theory and computer code make this a unique text and reference book for experienced scientists and students alike.” Markus Flury, Professor of Soil Physics and Vadose Zone Hydrology, Washington State University.
