Running your Picarro GasScouter and eosAC Off-Grid – Part 1

Running your Picarro GasScouter and eosAC Off-Grid – Part 1

Running your Picarro GasScouter and eosAC Off-Grid – Part 1 Introduction to the Picarro Gas Scouter and eosAC Automated Soil Flux Chambers Gas analyzers have become increasingly more precise over the past 10 years with the adoption of laser-based sources and ultra-long path length optical cells. However, usually this has been at the cost of power […]

Is your seal affecting your chamber closure and flux measurements?

Is your seal affecting your chamber closure and flux measurements?

Is your chamber seal affecting your flux measurements? Manual and automated chambers provide invaluable data about greenhouse gas fluxes that can be used for applications ranging from understanding basic biological processes to evaluating feedbacks and impacts of climate change. As greenhouse gas analyzers become more precise and offer highly resolved temporal data, methods used for […]

Combining Multiple Measurement Techniques

Combining Multiple Measurement Techniques

Combining Multiple Techniques: Benefits of Unified Measurements Researchers are no strangers to using multiple measurement techniques to cover the many scales of spatial and temporal variation experienced in the field. On the Eosense blog, we’ve surveyed a number of publications by scientists who need multiple measurement techniques to answer their core research questions, ranging from […]

Powering the eosAC-MX and Gas Analyzer Using a Generator

Powering the eosAC-MX and Gas Analyzer Using a Generator

Considerations for Seting Up a Generator to Power Your Gas Flux System Eosense’s eosAC and eosMX/MX-P are designed to be deployed in remote and challenging environments alongside Picarro and LGR analyzers. As a result, many of these field deployments won’t allow users the convenience of grid power, and may be situated in areas unsuitable or difficult […]

Minimum Detectable (Soil) Flux: Part 3

Minimum Detectable (Soil) Flux: Part 3

Part three of the three part series. Here are Part 1 and Part 2. Download the complete article (PDF). Extending minimum detectable flux to high-frequency measurements As discussed previously, the MDF metric provides a useful experimental design and quality control criteria for flux measurements. However, it can be extended from the original formulation to show […]

Minimum Detectable (Soil) Flux: Part 1

Minimum Detectable (Soil) Flux: Part 1

Part one of a three part series. Evaluating gas emission measurements using minimum detectable flux (MDF) Traditional vial-and-syringe-type measurements of closed chamber trace gas fluxes have provided researchers with massive amounts of insight into ecosystems ranging from old growth forests to heavily managed agricultural fields. However, anyone who has ever collected these types of gas […]

Resilience of soil respiration to plant stress

Resilience of soil respiration to plant stress

Strong resilience of soil respiration as shown in two different studies by Barba et al. (2016) and Egan et al. (2011) in response to stress. With shifting regional and global climates, understanding the response of ecosystems to drought-induced stress is becoming increasingly critical. A paper published by Barba et al. (2016) in Oecologia yielded some […]
