Abstract/Summary Monitoring of transient soil moisture profiles yields valuable insight into soil hydraulic processes. A recently developed reconstruction algorithm allows deriving water content profiles along extended moisture probes from Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) signals. Based on inverse modelling of the wave propagation along a transmission-line the algorithm calculates electrical parameter distributions. The method named Spatial TDR will be explained and the accuracy as well as the spatial and temporal resolution defining the possibilities and limitations of the procedure will be presented on practical examples.
