Tomatoes browning on bottom

I'm having several tomatoes browning on the bottom when they are green. What could be the cause? Is there something I can do to prevent this? Thank you for your help.

The tomatoes have blossom end rot which is a common problem. It is a deficiency of calcium and moisture stress. This OSU publication, "Blossom End Rot in Tomatoes" will give you details on causes, prevention and remedies, which is mainly consistent watering.
