Definitions for "Lysimeter"
An instrument for measuring the water that percolates through a certain depth of soil.
Device for measuring leaching losses from a column or block of soil. The simplest lysimeters may be devices for sampling a portion of the water leaching through a natural sediment or soil (e.g. suction lysimeter), whereas more elaborate lysimeters may involve the confinement of an entire segment of soil from which all leachate is collected (e.g. monolithic lysimeter).[] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [ I-J-K] [] [ M-N] [ O-P] [ Q-R] [] [] [ U-V] [ W-X-Y-Z
