Short summary
The current study aimed to describe the dynamics of soil water content at three depths in a vineyard under rain-fed and irrigation conditions and to assess the multifractality of these time data series. Soil water content data series obeyed power laws and tended to behave as multifractals. Our results suggest that singularity spectra were useful for characterising temporal variability of soil water content, distinguishing patterns among series registered under rain-fed and irrigation treatments.
