Determination of Moisture Content in Soil - JoVE

The dry mass of the soil particles is fixed, whereas the amount of water within moist soil can vary. Therefore, moisture content is calculated on a dry basis, rather than a total mass basis, to ensure consistency. The moisture content of soil is described as the ratio of the mass of water held in the soil to the dry soil.
