Generating a Soil Moisture Characteristic with the WP4
A moisture release curve, also known as a soil moisture characteristic, relates the water potential of a particular soil to its water content. This information is important for describing water storage in soil and water availability to plants, and for predicting water and contaminant transport
Correcting Temperature Sensitivity of ECH20 Soil Moisture Sensors (.pdf)
In many natural and engineered soils, the output of ECH2O soil moisture sensors is sensitive to variations in the soil temperature. The temperature sensitivity is not caused by the ECH2O sensors themselves which are almost perfectly insensitive to temperature changes, but rather the electrical
Calibration and Evaluation of an Improved Low-Cost Soil Moisture Sensor (.pdf)
Irrigation scheduling in agriculture and turf requires a soil moisture sensor (SMS) that is accurate, reliable, and low-cost. Although there are many SMS on the market, their use is limited because they fall short in one of these areas. A need exists for a sensor that offers high quality
Calibrating ECH2O Soil Moisture Sensors (.pdf)
Decagon's ECH2O probes measure the volumetric water content of the soil by measuring the dielectric constant of the soil, which is a strong function of water content. However, not all soils have identical electrical properties. Due to variations in soil texture and salinity, the generic mineral

Microwave Dielectric Behavior of Wet Soils
Soil moisture plays an important role in the runoff process, and its evaluation can be used as a marker of flood risk or drought occurrence.
The approach is used to find the functional form of the Evaporative Fraction (ratio of latent heat flux to sum of latent and sensible heat fluxes) dependence on soil moisture .
Previously, the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) has been used to estimate soil mois- ture and related fluxes by merging noisy low frequency microwave observations with forecasts from a conventional though uncertain land surface model (LSM).
