Improved instrumentation for monitoring the diurnal and seasonal cycles in the dielectric properties of forest canopiesThe design and implementation of a dielectric measurement system that facilitates the automated and continuous in situ monitoring of the dielectric properties of several canopy constituents is presented. This system utilizes the same coaxial line reflection coefficient measurement technique as the portable dielectric probe (PDP) while incorporating several features that facilitate the automated monitoring of canopy dielectric properties. The new system is capable of continuously monitoring the dielectric properties of the canopy constituents in a near-simultaneous fashion. The implementation of a data logger as a user interface has increased the number of measurements that the instrument is able to store in memory while significantly improving system reliability.
