Office Hours 1: Soil Moisture

Learn soil moisture measurement methods, best practices, applications, and more in this live Q&A session with our science and product experts.

Better data—better understanding

Without an accurate understanding of soil moisture and water potential, you could unwittingly undermine your experiment, or worse, obtain poor quality data which lead to wrong decisions or conclusions, causing publication issues. Whether a lab tech, research scientist, or grad student, a strong understanding of soil moisture can help you make better decisions and measurements, ensuring your data are publishable. 

In this first-ever METER Environment Office Hours Live Q & A session, join research scientist Dr. Colin Campbell and application specialist Chris Chambers as they tackle your most pressing soil moisture questions about: 

  • Experimental design
  • Measurement science and methodology
  • Best practices
  • Installation issues
  • Data interpretation
  • And more

Dr. Colin Campbell has been a research scientist at METER for 20 years following his PH.D. at Texas A&M University in Soil Physics. He is currently serving as Vice President of METER Environment. He is also adjunct faculty with the Dept. of Crop and Soil Sciences at Washington State University, where he co-teaches Environmental Biophysics, a class he took over from his father, Gaylon, nearly 20 years ago. Dr. Campbell’s early research focused on field-scale measurements of CO2 and water vapor flux but has shifted toward moisture and heat flow instrumentation for the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.

Chris Chambers operates as the Environment Support Manager and the Soil Moisture Sensor Product Manager at METER Group, the world leader in soil moisture measurement. He specializes in ecology and plant physiology and has over 10 years of experience helping researchers measure the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.
