It is very important to measure soil water content. The change in the content of water in the soil will have significant influence over the deformation characteristics and strength of the soil. It also affects groundwater flow and surface constructions.
There are different methods to measure the water content in the soil some of them are, neutron instrument, oven drying method, and TDR (Time Domain Reflectometers). All this method requires physical installations in the soil and are not suitable for disturbed soil. So, there is a requirement for the new and improved method.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method which generates the images from the electromagnetic radar pulses. This is a non-destructive method using electromagnetic waves in the microwave band within the radio spectrum and this helps us to detect the reflected signals from the underground structure. It can also be used in areas including rocks, soil, ice, snow, water, etc… The technology of the GPR is very similar to the seismic and sonar.

From this project, we can get the water content of the soil of any condition. This test is very easy as this test does not include the excavation of the soil and many of the other mechanical method. This is also recommended as we will not disturb the soil structure and the data is collected from the natural soil sample. Not only water content but also, we can search the different types of the minerals as the velocities of the reflected waves are different for the different minerals and also the GPR can be set to different frequencies.
