New soil moisture technology

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Originally published August 10, 2015


TRACE became a test site for newly designed probes that measure continuous moisture from the surface of the soil down to 1-meter depth. The probes were installed in one warmed plot and in one control plot, and will be compared to nearby conventional soil moisture probes. The prototype PRISMS (Profile Resolving In Situ Soil Moisture Sensor) are developed by Transcend Engineering, a company that develops sensors and instrumentation for a great variety of applications. See their newletter HERE for more information.
