SVSOILS is a valuable program which assists in the design of soil cover systems for waste management faculties such as landfills, tailing deposits and waste rock dumps. In many cases the soil-water characteristic curves and hydraulic conductivity values for the potential soils which may be used for construction are not available during the early stages of design. We use SVSOILS to estimate the properties on the basis of the grain-size distribution and other simple index properties. This allows preliminary analysis to proceed almost immediately. The optimum soils may be selected for the more detailed and time-consuming testing. In many cases it is possible to provide a complete design while testing only a limited number of samples to confirm soil properties.

The power of SVSOILS is in its large database of soil-water characteristic curves, and the fact that this database can be added to by the user. The "query" option allows grouping of soils with similar characteristics, such as grain-size distribution and classification. SoilVision is a valuable tool for use in unsaturated soil studies.

I am currently using SVSOILS to estimate hydraulic conducitivity in areas where we have limited soil data and usually only estimates of soil texture. We are using the database of similar textures to interpolate soil moisture curves for input into drainage models to estimate impacts of drainage ditches to nearby wetland hydrology.
