Automated Regulating and Recording System for Cylinder Infiltrometers
- S. Matula and
- C. Dirksen
This paper describes a new system that regulates water applications to ring infiltrometers within ± 1 mL. Water application is triggered when free water on the soil surface reaches a preset lowest level, with a sensitivity of about 0.1 mm. By recording the times of the water application events, either automatically or manually, the maximum infiltration rate as function of time can be determined with high accuracy and minimum effort.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
