Titel:
The principle of ‘maximum energy dissipation’: a novel thermodynamic perspective on rapid water flow in connected soil structures. 
Abstract:
Preferential flow in biological soil structures is of key importance for infiltration and soil water flow at a range of scales. In the present study, we treat soil water flow as a dissipative process in an open non-equilibrium thermodynamic system, to better understand this key process. We define the chemical potential and Helmholtz free energy based on soil physical quantities, parametrize a physically based hydrological model based on field data and simulate the evolution of Helmholtz free ene...    »
