Abstract/Description

This study looks at the soil moisture in the state of Kentucky and the different levels of soil moisture in each county. To study the soil moisture this project looks at the different soil types found in each county and how soil types play a role in the soil moisture. This project goes into detail about the difference between porous vs permeable soils, and how each affects soil moisture and the types of soils that are porous vs permeable. After finding the soil type and the role it plays in soil moisture, this project will mainly look closely at Jefferson County (Louisville Metro Area) and due to the different types of soils closer look into Prospect, KY. The project looks at soil moisture levels in Jefferson county based on the location of a specific area and how it may be affected by location and soil type found in that area.
