An Electrical Conductivity Probe for Determining Soil Salinity1

  1. J. D. Rhoades and
  2. J. van Schilfgaarde2



An electrical conductivity probe for determining soil salinity is described with construction details. The probe's utility for measuring soil salinity within discrete soil depth intervals is illustrated with examples. Using the salinity probe, the Barnes method for estimating electrical conductivity profiles was shown to be accurate for soils that are reasonably homogeneous laterally.
