179 Advances in Soil Sensing and Model Integration with Instrumentation Poster

Poster Session
SSSA Division: Soil Physics and Hydrology
Sensing of soil properties has long been a subject of research as well as a tool for research, but tools to support decision making based on soil sensing have lagged behind. Commonly sensed soil properties include bulk electrical permittivity and conductivity, soil temperature and surrogate properties related to soil water potential. This session will focus not only on advances in soil sensing but, equally importantly, advances in integration of sensed properties and sensing systems with simulation models to provide decision support tools. Examples of such tools range from agronomic to weather forecasting to hydrologic forecasting, among others.
