The following pages are the author's notes taken during 1969 and are devoted, in the main, to a discussion of methods for measuring the resistivity of soil. While this is not a satisfactory method for measuring soil moisture, the material was assembled before its shortcomings were appreciated and is documented here as a background to the study of soil moisture measurement as a function of depth. This material is derived from source material and has been printed to have this information available. It does not reflect the research and literature since that time, nor the present thinking of the author.
