Silixa to present at the 49th AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, USA on 12 December, 2016

Silixa Ltd will be presenting the results of several active distributed temperature sensing (Active-DTS) surveys at AGU 2016 in San Francisco on 12 December, 2016.

The surveys were conducted using  Silixa’s ULTIMA™ DTS and XT-DTS™ to measure soil water content at high-resolution along a forested hill slope in the United Kingdom.

Active-DTS is a technique that combines distributed temperature measurements with a heat pulse sent along the optical cable. Soil water content profiles can be extracted from temperatures trends during heating and/or cooling phases.

The Distributed intelligent Heat Pulse Sensor (DiHPS) project is funded by the British National Environmental Research Council (NERC) and is being carried out by the University of Birmingham, the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Silixa Ltd.

Abstract ID and Title: 181376: High-Resolution Monitoring of Soil Water Dynamics in a Vegetated Hillslope by Active Distributed Temperature Sensing
Final Paper Number: H13K-1563
Presentation Type: Poster
Session Date and Time: Monday, 12 December 2016; 13:40 – 18:00
Session Number and Title: H13K: Advancing Ecohydrology with Geophysics Posters
Location: Moscone South; Poster Hall

AGU’s Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. It provides a forum for presenting the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field.
