What Is Oven Dry Soil -

An oven heating temperature of 110 may be too high for soils containing gypsum, as this material slowly dehydrates. As per ASTM, a drying temperature of 60C is more appropriate for such soils. It is recommended the Cooling the dry soil after oven drying (Step 5) in a desiccator. It helps to prevents the absorption of moisture from the ...

Soil water content affects the moisture and amount of nutrients available to plants and soil aeration status. Soil water content can be measured on a mass or volume basis. Gravimetric soil water content is the mass of water in the soil, measured as the difference between the moist soil and the soil dried at 105C, known as the oven-dry weight.
