The paper deals with the problem of measuring the soil moisture by an accurate and real-time method. Since no available measuring techniques provide both an accurate estimation of the soil water content and a user-friendly real-time system, the authors examine a method to assess the degree of the saturation with water in granular materials that use acoustic wave. Particularly, the influence of soil characteristics on velocity of wave propagation are analysed in systematic way. The final aim of the research is to carry out a simple and complete system for microclimate soil analysis.
