METER Environment

MEASURE THE SOIL-PLANT-ATMOSPHERE CONTINUUM

 

ATMOS 41

Most weather stations are cluttered, complicated, and frustrating to install and maintain. Wiring and programming can be a nightmare, and finding room to mount everything can be a challenge.

METER SUPPORTS TAHMO

Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) is a not-for-profit organization. TAHMO makes high-quality data freely available to governments, scientists and farmers in real time.

DISCOVER ALL ATMOS INSTRUMENTS

As world experts in soil-plant-atmosphere measurements, we developed the ATMOS weather and climate product line without any moving parts to keep it reliable and simple.

Which soil sensor is perfect for you?

When choosing between METER’s soil sensors, the first thing to know is that all METER soil sensors have the same research-grade accuracy with minimum sensitivity to salts (10 dS/m bulk EC), …

TDR vs. CAPACITANCE

When considering which soil water content sensor will work best for any application, it’s easy to overlook the obvious question: what is being measured?

Soil moisture sensors—how many do you need?

The number of soil moisture sensors installed at a research site can make the difference between proving a hypothesis or missing it entirely.

Data logger compatibility tables

Search the following tables to find out which data loggers are compatible with various types of METER sensors.

HYPROP® IMPROVED

As soil scientists who have made hundreds of moisture release curves, we wanted an instrument that delivered greater accuracy. And we demanded an instrument that was automated. The Hyprop 2 takes only days vs. months to generate a soil water characteristic curve in the wet range, and it does this automatically.

RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN SOIL

Many people assume the soil is dry when it feels dry to the touch. This false assumption can lead to poor decisions such as storing steel drums of toxic waste in a desert soil.

WATER POTENTIAL IN THE LAB

As world experts in water potential and soil suction, it wasn’t enough to engineer an instrument that delivered consistent accuracy.

 

SATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY

The KSAT is the only automated setup for taking saturated hydraulic conductivity measurements in the lab. It’s an instrument that uses both the falling and constant head methods.

Automated Particle Size Analysis

The all-new, simple and precise method for determining particle size distribution.

Particle size distribution is one of the most fundamental properties of soil, closely related to most physical and chemical soil properties, thus it affects almost every soil function.

PARIO improves the soil lab's workflow with unattended and automated operation. With the PARIO, the distinct disadvantages of the pipette and hydrometer method are avoided.
