Abstract: A simple empirical equation for the measurement of the moisture content in a soil sample by using a microwave bridge to measure attenuation and phase shift through the sample is proposed. A calibration chart has been obtained from this equation for the convenient determination of the moisture content in a soil sample of unknown density. The validity and applicability of the equation has been confirmed by measurements on several soil samples of varying densities and thicknesses.
