Soil quality -- Determination of soil water content as a volume fraction using coring sleeves -- Gravimetric method

ISO 11461:2001 Publication Description:

This International Standard specifies a method for the gravimetric determination of soil water content as a volume fraction.

The method is applicable to all types of non-swelling or non-shrinking soils where coring sleeves can be used for sampling. It is not applicable to soils where stones, tough roots or other factors prevent collection of soil cores. It is used as a reference method (e.g. the calibration of indirect methods for determination of water content).
