Abstract
A theoretical model to describe a linear relationship between bulk electric conductivity and dielectric constant is frequently used in the litreature. Some authors recommend an offset of that linear relationship of 4.1 for most soils. In our preliminary field experiments (loamy sand soil) two 5TE probes (measuring water content, temperature, and bulk EC) were used to show that the calculated offset of a linear model including bulk electrical conductivity and dielectric constant, differs accordin...
