Which soil moisture meters are most accurate?

About

The United States Geological Survey has published a new report on soil moisture measurements, which show that the most accurate way to measure soil moisture is to use a soil moisture gauge.

The new report comes as the U.S. is grappling with an increasing number of extreme weather events like droughts and wildfires that cause soil moisture to drop and flood homes and crops.

The report is the latest in a series by the U,S.

Geological Survey (USGS) and the USDA that have analyzed the effectiveness of soil moisture gauges to track water use and other changes in soil properties.

The USGS found that the gauge is reliable, and that it works well in some areas.

But in many other areas, the gauge fails to measure accurate soil moisture.

For example, in the Southwest, the soil moisture measurement method is inaccurate when it comes to water use.

In addition, soil moisture readings can be inaccurate in some places when it is measured on a day-to-day basis, such as the fall.

But that is not a problem for the U.,S.GS, because it is only measuring the amount of water on the ground at the time of measurement, and it is then only based on the amount that is on the soil surface.

“The accuracy of the soil humidity measurements in the United States is good, and they are a good way to track soil moisture,” said Dan Haney, a soil and water hydrology scientist at the University of California, Davis.

“It’s important to understand that this is a measurement that’s based on data from the ground.”

While there are a number of different soil moisture methods used around the country, the one used in the U has been around for nearly a century.

The gauge is designed to measure moisture on the surface of the earth, but does not have to be accurate.

“It’s a little bit of a problem, because there’s no way to tell when it’s accurate,” said Haney.

“The gauge itself is not accurate.

It’s not a measurement of the amount, it’s a measurement, but you can’t say when it was done.”

The gauge has been used in many different places for decades, and is used to track groundwater pumping in the Pacific Northwest, California and Colorado.

The soil moisture metric can be used in a wide variety of ways, including soil moisture in the ground, water in the soil and rainwater on the roof of a house, Haney said.
