Soil water activity.
Get back to me on <P.J.Harris at> and I will put your enquiry 
to our best soil physicist. Basically soil scientists do not work on 
water activity terms but matric and osmotic potentials. there is no real 
reason why there should not be common ground (and even better - 
conversion factors).
