Özet

In order to simulate soil suction and soil temperature, a field study was carried out in the experimental farm of the Agricultural Faculty, University of Cukurova (Adana/TURKEY), for a period of two years. During this period the soil was bare. Data collected regularly include soil suction and soil temperature. Meteorological data were obtained from the Adana Climatological Station. Data on soil suction and soil temperature were used to calibrate the simulation model, proposed by Huwe and van der Ploeg (1988). It was found that-the model, after having been calibrated, performed quite well. A fair agreement between measured and simulated soil temperatures was obtained. However, the calculated and measured soil suction values were found to be considerably different. The simulation model used in this study appears to be applicable for the conditions of the Cukurova Region in Southern Turkey.
