The comparison of two chamber designs for measurements of methane fluxes from a Wetland Research Park

Naturally occurring, biologically productive wetlands are significant greenhouse gas contributors, producing roughly 25% of the world’s methane stock. This is a concern to scientists on a global scale, as methane has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) 25x greater than that of CO2. It is imperative to gas flux science to understand the contribution that wetlands […]

Closed Chamber Systems for Continued Research of Greenhouse Gas Fluxes from Permafrost Zones

Closed Chamber Systems for Continued Research of Greenhouse Gas Fluxes from Permafrost Zones

Understanding greenhouse gas emissions from stored organic carbon is an increasingly important area in gas flux science. Melt of permafrost layers, caused by rising global temperatures, threatens to contribute more to atmospheric CO2 concentrations than previously thought. These large permafrost melt driven emissions of greenhouse gases also have the potential to cause accelerated global warming […]

Comparing Chambers for Measuring Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoirs

Comparing Chambers for Measuring Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoirs

The action of damming waterways has altered the natural courses of water, resulting in large volumes help up in reservoirs. Previous studies (1, 2)¬†have shown that these reservoirs, along with other inland water sources, are greenhouse gas (GHG) contributors; specifically CO2 and CH4. Precise methods for quantifying reservoir fluxes are not well-documented, though it is […]

Monitoring Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Re-Constructed Wetlands in the Athabascan Oil Sands Region

Monitoring Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Re-Constructed Wetlands in the Athabascan Oil Sands Region

Naturally occurring, highly saturated wetlands are an important player in the global carbon cycle; acting as net carbon sinks over a geological time scales. As land use changes, with increased urbanization and industrial development, wetlands are disappearing. Measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes in both natural and restored wetlands has become prevalent in ecological research in […]
