CHANGES IN FIBER-GLASS SOIL MOISTURE ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE ELEMENTS IN LONG-TERM INSTALLATIONS

THE ENTRANCE OF SOIL CONSTITUENTS INTO THE INTERELECTRODE MATERIAL OF COLEMAN MOISTURE UNITS CAUSES CHANGES IN CALIBRATED MOISTURE-RESISTANCE RELATIONS. THE DEGREE AND ABRUPTNESS OF CHANGE IS RELATED TO DEPTH OF PLACEMENT IN THE SOIL. REGULAR FIELD CALIBRATION CHECKS MUST BE PERFORMED IN ORDER TO CORRECT FOR THESE CHANGES. /RRL/A/
