Advanced Moisture Sensing Technology for Urban Greenery And Monitoring of Slope Stability

Many parts of the world experienced the impact of global warmings such as significant variations in rainfall and weather patterns. Consequently, these changes result in adverse effects on moisture contents of soils. Moisture content in soil is the key factor which determines plant health, soil characteristics and slope stability. The awarded project aims to develop analytical tools and advance moisture sensing technology for monitoring of plant health and sustained plant growth as well as safety of unsaturated and vegetated slopes under various climatic conditions.
