Abstract:

As a precursor to developing a well-documented database of complex electrical properties of soils as a function of signal frequency, sample moisture, sample temperature, and soil type, a comprehensive study of existing data collection methodology and analytical modeling was undertaken. Of particular utility are chronological tables of experimental and analytical milestones as well as an extensive reference list. Several appendices are included that are helpful in understanding soil-electromagnetic wave interactions and new concepts in modeling soil structure. Complex dielectric constant, Microwave, Soil, Conductivity, Permittivity.
