Title
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR MEASURING THE WATER CONTENT OF THE GROUND, VEGETATION AND SNOW
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE MESURE DE LA TENEUR EN EAU DU SOL, DE LA VÉGÉTATION ET DE LA NEIGE
Abstract
(EN)
A device (12) for measuring the water content of the ground, vegetation and snow, comprises: at least one first module (20) adapted to measure a flow of cosmic rays incident to the ground; at least one second module (40) adapted to measure an ambient neutron flow; and a control unit (60) connected to said at least one first module (20) and said at least one second module (40). The control unit (60) is adapted to process the measurements of said at least one first module (20) and said at least one second module (40) to determine the measurement of the water content.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif (12) pour mesurer la teneur en eau du sol, de la végétation et de la neige, comprenant : au moins un premier module (20) conçu pour mesurer un flux de rayons cosmiques incidents sur le sol; au moins un second module (40) permettant de mesurer un flux de neutrons ambiants; et une unité de commande (60) connectée audit au moins un premier module (20) et audit au moins un second module (40). L'unité de commande (60) est conçue pour traiter les mesures dudit au moins un premier module (20) et dudit au moins un second module (40) afin de déterminer la mesure de la teneur en eau.
