Abstract:

The purpose of this research is to determine the microwave dielectric behavior of soil through a experimental measurements and b the development of theoretical models. To this end, dielectric measurements were made using waveguide and freespace transmission systems over the 1-2 GHz and the 4-18 GHz bands over a wide range of moisture for several soil types. The measured data were then used to a test existing theoretical models, b develop a new physical soil model, and c develop semi-empirical models. Author
