Title: Interpreting Neutron Probe Readings In Frozen Soil
Author: Sartz, Richard S.;

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)
Description: Several factors associated with soil freezing complicate the interpretation of neutron probe readings in frozen soil. Temperature is unimportant, but the effect of vertical resolution must be considered. Because of the possibility of both gains and losses of water at the same depth during a period of measurement, interpreting changes in the water content of frozen soil is a subjective process.
Keywords: neutron probe, frozen soil
