Calibration of time domain reflectometry for water content measurement using a composite dielectric approach
Time domain reflectometry (TDR) has been developed to an operational level for the measurement of soil water content during the past decade. Because it is able to provide fast, precise andExpand

The Phytomanagement of Trace Elements in Soil
Trace elements (TEs) occur at low concentrations (<1000 mg kg −1) in organisms, yet they have a large biological effect, both as essential nutrients and environmental contaminants. PhytomanagementExpand
