Modules on measurement uncertainty and measuring soil moisture

We have created a module about measurement uncertainty, with a focus on soil moisture. The module consist of two e-lectures on the subject of uncertainty and soil moisture, and three instruction videos on how to use several measurement techniques in the field and lab.

The videos are available online: https://lecturenet.uu.nl/Site1/Catalog/catalogs/0424013-measurement-uncertainty

Students use these videos in an autonomous module with a fieldwork where they measure soil moisture using different techniques. The goal is to learn the techniques,  to understand differences between the different methods and to understand natural variability.
