Soil matric potential - tensiometer (T5)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Parameter to be measured:
Soil matric potential
- Very fast response
- Great resolution when used with the DL6-te Tensiometer Data logger
- Their small size makes them great for laboratory or flume experiments but less appropriate for field measurements.
- They have to be taken out of the soil to refill them.
What to watch out for:
- Don’t burry them too deep - you will have to dig them out (and thus disturb the soil again) if you need to refill them.
