Soil quality - Determination of dry bulk density
|Publication Date:||1 March 2017|
|ICS Code (Physical properties of soils):||13.080.20|
This document specifies three methods for the determination of dry bulk density of soils calculated from the mass and the volume of a soil sample. The methods involve drying and weighing a soil sample, the volume of which is either known [core method (see 4.1)] or determined [excavation method (see 4.2) and clod method (see 4.4)].
