The theme, Novel Ecosystems in the Anthropocene, is critical to understand at this point in human history. Overall, the sessions focused on the impacts of human activity on ecosystems, […]

eosFD chambers now measuring soil CO2 flux at Howland Forest

eosFD chambers now measuring soil CO<sub>2</sub> flux at Howland Forest

A set of eosFD chambers are enjoying their new home as part of a Mitacs-funded graduate internship, co-installed alongside existing automated soil respiration chambers at the Howland Forest in central Maine (See insert for more details about the amazing Howland Forest). Two weeks ago, I headed down to the forest, a tidy 7.5 hour drive […]

Top 5 reasons EC researchers need to measure soil respiration

Eddy covariance (EC) is an established technique that measures carbon exchange across the terrestrial-atmospheric interface, and is used to evaluate climate- and management-driven changes to carbon cycling across landscapes. EC systems have been widely used across the globe for more than 20 years, for example as part of the international consortium called FLUXNET, and offer […]
