    Soil covers are commonly used to isolate waste materials from the surrounding environment. The flux of moisture through a soil cover is one of the key parameters defining its performance. While the flux of moisture through soil covers has been well investigated for horizontal soil surfaces, there has been relatively little research on applications to sloped surfaces. This thesis examines moisture fluxes through soil covers in three dimensions, with a particular focus on the variations that occur in evaporation over a three dimensional (sloped) surface. A model for the prediction of net radiation over a three dimensional surface was developed, and verified with field experiments. Stati...
