m]), one simply differentiates the volumetric water content
with respect to the matric head.
D] is the volumetric water content
at the depth of the extra volume of soil to be included in the estimate.
96 for sandy loam and clay loam soils, respectively) between volumetric water content
[theta] and thermal conductivity K obtained from Eqn 8.
Particle density was used to calculate the total porosity of samples, from which the volumetric water contents
were subtracted to calculate the volumetric air contents, [[epsilon].

The Theta Probe instrument uses the apparent dielectric constant of the soil to estimate volumetric water content
at initial conditions ([[theta].
A similar trend for the volumetric water content
profile has been observed in another green roof study (Takebayashi et al.
The new Soil Moisture Smart Sensors provide high accuracy measurements of volumetric water content
in soil, and integrate industry-proven Decagon ECH2O[TM] dielectric probes for precise, long-term soil moisture monitoring.
Sensors based on frequency domain reflectometry (FDR) and capacitance-conductance (CC), are increasingly used for soil salinity estimation in agricultural irrigated fields because they estimate the soil volumetric water content
([theta]) and the soil bulk electrical conductivity ([[sigma].
The volumetric water content
mode indicates the percentage of water in the soil at the sampling depth.
Then, the volumetric water content
for each horizon/layer and each matric potential was computed from the gravimetric water contents and the bulk density of the corresponding horizon/layer.
