Apr 01, 2013 The accuracy and moisture range that oven-drying techniques offer is very similar to other thermogravimetric methods. Primary disadvantages of using oven-drying methods include time and non-portability. For complete and accurate results with oven drying moisture analysis techniques, the ramp up and soaking times are rather long.

Protocol - Gravimetric Soil Moisture - KBS LTER

To measure soil moisture content by the gravimetric method, a subsample of a fresh, sieved composite sample or a fresh soil core is weighed, oven dried until there is no further mass loss, and then reweighed. The moisture content is expressed as mass of water per mass of dry soil. Sampling frequency: Depends on experiment and research objective.
