The International Society for Electromagnetic Aquametry ISEMA is an informal association of scientists and engineers from academia, industry, and government who are bound together by their common interest in the theory, technology, and practical application of RF and microwave measurements of water content in a wide range of materials.
Quantitative measurements of water content in materials are important from an economic point of view.
Since water occurs in most materials in nature as a natural component of the material or is introduced during technological processes, it is quite obvious that measurement and control of moisture content continues to be of great economic and technical importance. Typical non-destructive techniques for determining moisture content in a material consist of measurement of the electrical properties of the material in a sample holder and correlation of these properties to determine moisture content.
Knowledge and control of moisture content in a large variety of materials presents a great potential for saving fuel, energy and manpower combined with an improvement in the quality of the end product, determining a powerful incentive for research and equipment development all over the world. After a first informal meeting, held inannual technical conferences on the subjects of interest for ISEMA members were held in Germany in the late s.
The conference was attended by scientists from 14 countries Australia, China, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States of Americafor a total of 58 scientific contributions on topics ranging from theoretical aspects of water-based dielectrics to measurement methods and real-world applications.
Just to give an idea of the conference coverage, papers were arranged in eleven sessions Dielectric properties of water and solutions, Frequency domain methods, Time domain methods, Modelling and inversion, Material properties, Porous media, Metrology, Applications in biomedicine agriculture and food, Applications in civil engineering and cultural heritage, Devices and industrial applications, and Remote sensing and imagingplus three special opening talks devoted to theoretical subjects.

The papers selected for this Special Session on Electromagnetic Aquametry mainly concern measurement aspects [ 1 — 4 ] and sensors and applications [ 5 — 14 ], but there are also a number of articles devoted to theoretical and experimental methods aimed at obtaining a deeper understanding of water in moist materials [ 15 — 21 ]. Of course, this collection of articles only represents a ‘snapshot’ of the current research on the interaction of electromagnetic fields with moist substances and with water and, as such, it is inevitably limited.
Nonetheless, the selected papers provide an overview of the current state of the art on several research topics, from those concerning time-domain and frequency-domain measurement techniques and sensors, to physical aspects relating to the presence of water and salts in natural materials like clays, soils, rocks and wood or in man-made materials like concrete.
Novel applications are also covered, for example, on electromagnetic diagnostics in the preservation of cultural heritage, near-field microwave microscopy, holographic radar, and atmospheric monitoring by radio-telescope. Theoretical aspects relating to confined water and to the molecular-dynamics simulation of moist substances are also covered.
We trust this collection will inspire new research in fields concerning the dielectric properties of water and moist substances, and we take this opportunity to strongly and warmly invite researchers to join ISEMA. We sincerely thank all the authors for their contributions and the referees for their efforts in reviewing the articles, decisively contributing to the improvement of the quality and effectiveness of the papers.
