We conduct critical reviews on the experimental and theoretical methodologies on soil water density to identify their limitations, flaws, and uncertainties. We synthesize some recent findings on intermolecular forces, interfacial interactions, and soil water retention mechanisms to clarify molecular-scale physicochemical mechanisms governing the soil water density. We propose a unified model to quantify soil water density variation.
