An in-situ device for determining the soil water potential by measuring the dewpoint temperature depression is described. The application of this design should be restricted to circumstances where the osmotic contribution to the total water potential is either small or not changing rapidly. These criteria are generally satisfied in the humid regions.- from Authors
