Experimental characterisations of green roof substrate physical properties
The dataset describes the Soil Water Release Curve (SWRC) and Hydraulic Conductivity Function (HCF) of four representative green roof substrates. The runoff and moisture content data collected during the detention tests with the substrates is also included in this dataset.
This dataset provides the data used in the journal paper:
Peng, Z., Smith, C., Stovin, V., 2020. The importance of unsaturated hydraulic conductivity measurements for green roof detention modelling. J. Hydrol. 590, 125273.
