Researchers from Forschungszentrum Julich Publish Findings in Magnetic Resonance Research
October 6th, 2011
"Characterization and quantification of root water uptake processes play a key role in understanding and managing the effects of global climate change on agricultural production and ecosystem dynamics. Part of this understanding is related to the flow of water towards plant roots in soils," investigators in Julich, Germany report.
"In this study we demonstrate for the first time, to our knowledge, that fluid flow in the voids of the pore space of a model soil system (natural sand) can be detected and mapped to an NMR image for mean flows as low as 0.06 mm/s even under the influence of internal magnetic field gradients. To accomplish this we combined multi-slice imaging...
