Soil moisture regulates the landing-surface-atmosphere interaction process, which is an important factor affecting the exchange of water and energy in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. Soil moisture is also a key factor affecting the hydrological, biological and biochemical processes of ecosystems and is an indispensable component of terrestrial ecosystems. This paper briefly reviews the monitoring at point and surface scale and analysis methods about soil moisture, systematically described the research progress of soil moisture in arid and semi-arid region, and put forward the prospect of soil moisture research based on the present research progress in arid and semi-arid region. All this is in order to promote in-depth understanding and accurately predict the ecological and hydrological effects of soil moisture changes in arid and semi-arid areas, and lay a theoretical foundation for the formulation of scientific and reasonable water resources management scheme in arid and semi-arid areas.

Key words: soil moisture, scales, research progress, prospect, arid and semi-arid areas
