What is it about?
This study was designed to obtain both field and laboratory data that quantifies the SMC and SFC for different soil textures and salinities and to compare the results with those obtained from three different models: (a) capillary and adsorption effects (the GCE approach); (b) salt exclusion effects; (c) combined salt exclusion and GCE effects.

Why is it important?
Salinity is a dominant control on the SFC in real soils that always contain solutes.
