In order to analyze the dynamic response characteristics of soil moisture to rainfall in the Mu Us Sandy Land sand-fixing forest of Pinus sylvestris, the AV-3665R rain gauge, ECH20-5 soil moisture sensor, and deep leakage water tester are used to automatically monitor the rainfall, 0-150cm soil moisture content, and leakage below 150cm of the Pinus sylvestris sand-fixing forest in 2020-2021.The result shows: Cumulative rainfall from May to October in Pinus sylvestris sand-fixing forest significantly affected the change of soil moisture in the 0-150cm layer. Among them, rainfall from May to June has little effect on the soil layer below 100cm, and rainfall after September has a significant effect on soil moisture replenishment; Rainfall less than 40mm has no direct replenishment effect on soil layers below 100cm;Rainfall greater than 50.1mm has a replenishing effect on soil moisture in the 180cm layer, and when the initial water content of the surface layer is high, the rainfall infiltration is fast, the duration is short, and the recharge effect is large. Rainfall and initial water content of soil surface have significant effects on the process and characteristics of soil water infiltration in Pinus sylvestris sand-fixing forest after rainfall.
