Soil quality -- Determination of soil water content as a volume fraction on the basis of known dry bulk density -- Gravimetric method
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2014. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 16586:2003 specifies a method for the gravimetric determination of soil water content as a volume fraction on the basis of the ratio of measured water content mass to known dry bulk density.
ISO 16586:2003 is applicable to all types of non-swelling or non-shrinking soils. It is used as a reference method (e.g. the calibration of indirect methods for determination of water content).
