This video describes how to select a soil moisture study site and sampling strategy, and identifies what laboratory instruments will be needed to complete a soil moisture analysis. Students are shown collecting soil moisture data and asking questions about what soil moisture data might tell them about the environment. The resource includes a video and a written transcript, and is supported by the Soil Moisture Protocol in the GLOBE Teacher's Guide. This is one of five videos about soils in the 24-part instructional video series describing scientific protocols used by GLOBE (Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment), a worldwide, hands-on, K-12 school-based science education program.
