Determining Soil Electrical Conductivity-Depth Relations Using an Inductive Electromagnetic Soil Conductivity Meter1
- J. D. Rhoades and
- D. L. Corwin2
A new inductive electromagnetic device (EM) for measuring soil electrical conductivity (ECa) was tested. Practical and accurate methods are given for measuring ECa by soil depth intervals through soil profiles using a succession of EM readings made at various heights above ground. In contrast with other devices and methods for field salinity appraisal, readings are obtained without any soil-to-instrument contact. The device is well suited for field investigations of soil salinity.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
