The research group Soil Physics has a well-equipped lab to determine most physical and hydraulic properties of porous media and soils in particular.

> Bulk density and porosity
> Particle density
> Water retention curve (pF curve)
> Saturated hydraulic conductivity (permeability)
> Hydraulic conductivity curve (unsaturated)
> Air permeability
> Aggregate stability
> Penetration resistance
> Atterberg limits (consistency)
> Granulometry (texture)
> Specific surface area (BET)
> Windtunnel with rainulator
> Column lysimeters
> Water content
> Soil-water potential
> Soil temperature
