Landscape water flux is suggested as a unifying focus for hydropedology that is related to storages, pathways, residence times, and spatio-temporal organization of water in the root and deep vadose zones, and through which pedological and hydrological expertise can be better integrated.
After illustrating multiple knowledge gaps that can be addressed by the synergistic integration of pedology and hydrology, we suggest twelve scientific hypotheses that require vigorous testing and concerted efforts from pedologists and hydrologists.
We then present three interlinked strategies for achieving the stated vision.
