News from the field

On June 14th, 2019, Vincent and Yannick had a field trip to the Au Saumon and Magog watersheds. In addition to routine maintenance of the moisture sensors – general verification and data download – soil samples have been brought back to the laboratory to verify the actual water content of the soil. This procedure revealed a systematic bias read by METER Group’s EC-5 probe that is likely due to over-compaction of the soil. A correction can therefore be applied to the data series, potentially improving the process of data assimilation in hydrological models such as HYDROTEL.
