Abstract

A procedure was developed for determination of the soil water characteristic curve with thermocouple psychrometry. Complete soil water characteristic curves were obtained for a Nicollet clay loam, a Waukegan silt loam, and a Hubbard sand within one week in ambient air conditions. The curves obtained by the psychrometer method compared favorably with those obtained by pressure methods.
