ABSTRACT:

The effects of moisture and bulk density on soil temperature have been studied on loamy sand. The study revealed that as soil moisture increased from air-dry state, maximum soil temperature decreased to a minimum at the hygroscopic point, however, maximum soil temperature increased with increasing soil moisture. Bulk density is used to represent the compactness. It was discovered that maximum soii temperature increased with increasing bulk density.
