Soil quality - Determination of soil water content as a volume fraction on the basis of known dry bulk density - Gravimetric method

Status: Valid · Corrected by: SS-ISO 16586/Cor 1:2009

Scope
This International Standard specifies a method for the gravimetric determination of soil water content as a volume fraction on the basis of the ratio of measured water content mass to known dry bulk density. This International Standard is applicable to all types of non-swelling or non-shrinking soils. It is used as a reference method (e.g. the calibration of indirect methods for determination of water content).
