California State University


Diganta Adhikari and Dave Goorahoo --August, 2003
Summary:
For the tests conducted at the two temperatures with the application of increasing salt solutions on a sandy loam soil, there was excellent correlation between the volumetric water contents measured with the Acclima Digital TDT ® sensor and the calculated values. The Acclima sensor performed well within the statistical 95% confidence interval and in fact performed significantly better. Researches were amazed at the accuracy of the sensor.
