water content

[′wȯd·ər ‚kän‚tent]
(hydrology)
The liquid water present within a sample of snow (or soil) usually expressed in percent by weight; the water content in percent of water equivalent is 100 minus the quality of snow. Also known as free-water content; liquid-water content.

moisture content

1. The weight of water, usually expressed as a percentage of the total dry weight of a material.
2. The weight of water in a given soil mass.

The samples were mixed and split into two subsamples, the first to determine the gravimetric water content (w), and the second to determine the extractable ions and cation exchange capacity (CEC).

After this, a subsample was taken to determine the gravimetric water content ([[theta].
Some studies have indicated that an increase in soil compaction results in lower gravimetric water content in the high matric potential range (from 0 to ~-16kPa) and higher gravimetric water content at low values of matric potential (from -50 to -1550 kPa) (Domzal 1983; Walczak and Baranowski 1997).

Then another 50mL of distilled water was added to each bag resulting in a gravimetric water content of ~0.
