Professor at the State University of Mato Grosso (UNEMAT), Campus of Nova Xavantina, Mato Grosso State, Brazil. The broad scope of my interest is the impact of environmental changes in biogeochemical cycles of tropical vegetations. We are focusing on phytophysiognomic determinants and vegetation dynamics at Amazon forest-Cerrado transition zone in Brazil. I'm also conducting studies on pyrogenic carbon in forestry and agriculture as a means of sequestering atmospheric CO2.

    To calibrate the Hydrosense: 1) measure the moisture with the probe and remove in the same place, at the same time, 2-3 moist samples, protect against drying and weigh; 2) drying the samples in an oven at 110 º C until constant weight and weigh again; 3) calculate the soil moisture based on wet and dry weights, 4) repeat the operation once or twice until to obtain two different measures of soil moisture, 5) build a calibration curve with the results and always use it to fix the values ​​obtained by Hydrosense. Repeat all steps for each soil... More
