The objective was to model the spatial distribution of the physical properties of the soil through geostatistics in the Brazilian semi-arid region. The study was carried out in the Experimental Basin of Ipanema River, Pernambuco, in an alluvial area with regular grid and samples of 40 points. Infiltration tests were carried out to assess hydraulic conductivity and sampling was performed to determine soil texture and soil organic carbon (SOC). The variables were subjected to descriptive and

The best fits were obtained with the Spherical model for the hydraulic conductivity, sand, silt, and clay variables, and the Gaussian model for SOC. Thus, with the geostatistics technique, it was possible to map and verify the main physical characteristics of the soil in the area, providing greater optimization in agriculturalplanning
