  • Using Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) to Measure Soil Water.

    What is Electromagnetic induction Sensing? Electromagnetic induction sensing (EMI or more commonly referred to as simply EM) and other soil conduction devices (e.g. those that use resistivity) can be used to map apparent soil conductivity (ECa). The most commonly used instruments for plant rooting depth measurement are the Geonics EM38-MK2 and the DUALEM-2 or the Geonics EM31 MK2 for looking deeper into the soil profile. The instruments can be handheld or mounted on a non-conductive sled or sling behind a vehicle and coupled to a GPS to allow mapping of large areas. Electromagnetic induction measures the apparent electrical
