Soil moisture; Soils--Analysis
Soil water trends were monitored during the 1971 growing season on the Anoka Sand Plain in east-central Minnesota. Soils were sampled under four vegetation densities, ranging from old field through increasing amounts of oak overstory. There was no difference over the sampled period in total soil water content (to 100 cm) on the four sites. Differences were found in water content of individual soil horizons, and especially in the surface horizon (0 to 10 cm). A model of evapotranspiration was used to simulate the observed trends and the prediction and observations were closely correlated (r2 ~ 0 .91).
