Abstract
Soil moisture is important for at least two reasons: first, because part of, it is the water available to vegetation for plant growth and evapo transpiration, and second, because the moisture status of the surface soil influences the response of a catchment to rainfall. It is convenient to regard soil moisture as divided between three "stores": the surface store, the storage to the depth reached by roots, and table.
