Abstract
Soil is well recognized as one of the most complex systems. The interaction and coupled physical, chemical and biological processes and phenomena occurring in the soil environment at di_erent spatial and temporal scales are the main reasons for such complexity. There is a need of appropriate methodologies to characterize soil porous systems with an interdisciplinary character. In this work we will perform an analysis of the community structure of porous media of soils applying several concepts from complex networks. Four di_erent real soils samples have been modelled as heterogeneous complex networks and spatial communities of pores have been studied in these networks in an attempt to deepen the porous media complexity. The results shown that pore communities presence depend on the parameters values of porous soil model used to construct the network. The detection of communities of pores, as groups densely connected with only sparser connections between groups, could contribute to understand the mechanisms of the di_usion phenomena in soils, such as gas and water di_usion, development and dynamics of microorganisms, among others.
