Infiltration characteristic of Tropical Soil is a study in determining representative infiltration rate parameters for use in modeling infiltration characteristics of soil under tropical climate in terms of geostatistical analysis. This study deals with the variation of soil hydraulic properties of different locations at the campus area of University Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). The proposed project allowed understanding in describing the various characteristics of the nature of infiltration characteristics of tropical soil in the campus area of UTP. The aim of the study is to assess the difference in soil hydraulic characteristics around the campus area of UTP by performing double ring infiltrometer and evaluate the infiltration rate for every location. 50 infiltration test data obtained in different locations will be used in Horton's Infiltration equation to learn the characteristic of the soil. This allowed arriving at a generalized of Horton's infiltration equation for the campus area of UTP. Difference in soil hydraulic characteristics and determining field scale flow processes are complex due to the various natures of soil properties. The method of modeling this variety of nature of infiltration characteristics at the campus area of UTP comprises three parts which are determination of geo-grid locations, field data experiments where by the double ring infiltration tests are conducted at pre determined geo-grids locations and computer analysis on the soil infiltration data; to examine the spatial distribution of soil infiltration rates, to quantify the spatial correlation in the data in terms of semivariogram parameters and to prepare spatial distribution maps of soil hydraulic properties . Results from this project are expected to contribute to the understanding and characterization of small scale spatial variability nature of infiltration characteristics of tropical soil
