For many years monitoring methods have lagged behind numerical analyses of water flow, solute transport, and heat transfer into and through the vadose zone. However, recent advances in electronic components, renewed interest in development of monitoring methods, and the infusion of geophysical methods into vadose zone hydrology have begun to address this imbalance. The special section entitled, “Advances in Measurement and Monitoring Methods” in this issue of Vadose Zone Journal is dedicated to advances in technologies for nondestructive measurement of heat and mass transfer.

The collection of papers stems from a symposium at the annual Soil Science Society of American...
