Soil moisture applications and practices using the Hydra Probe II soil moisture sensor
Over the past ten years, environmental monitoring has become increasingly important. Environmental factors such as climate change, dwindling water resources, and threatened habitats are driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better policies to protect it. Many natural processes in the environment are driven by or in some ways related soil hydrological processes. Monitoring soil moisture conditions provides important information for the protection and in the understanding of local and regional water resources. The Stevens Hydra Probe II Soil Sensor is the most advanced soil sensor commercially available and described below are application examples where the Hydra Probe II has been used to gather data.
