Abstract

The relationships between the sediment concentration in flowing water and the output of capacitance sensor, as affected by temperature, flow velocity, soil types and salt contents were experimentally investigated with 2 types of capacitance sensors. A loam and a sandy soil with sediment concentration up to 70% were studied. The results showed that suspended sediment concentrations, over a wide range, were linearly correlated with the outputs of capacitance sensors. The results suggest that capacitance sensors may be used for sediment concentration measurement of flowing water
