Title:
METHOD FOR MEASURING MOISTURE CONTENT IN DEPTH DIRECTION OF GROUND
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2011174767
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a method for measuring a moisture content in the depth direction of a ground which enables measurement of the distribution of the moisture content (saturation rate) in the depth direction of the ground and enables grasp of a state of moisture of the ground in the deep range.

Heat is given to the ground 1 by a heating wire 4 and the amount of temperature rise corresponding to the depth is measured by an optical fiber cable 3 at a plurality of places in the depth direction separately, so that the saturation rate corresponding to the depth is determined on the basis of the measured amount of temperature rise and the distribution of the saturation rate in the depth direction of the ground 1 is derived therefrom.
