Continuous CO2 fluxes in the Cassiope heath

Continuous CO2 fluxes in the Cassiope heath

This blog post was co-authored by Dr. Magnus Lund, Gillian Simpson and Zhila Rashidi (Eosense) BACKGROUND: This summer, researchers from the GeoBasis team at Aarhus University (Denmark) took six eosFD soil CO2 flux sensors to the Zackenberg Research Station in north-eastern Greenland to conduct continuous measurements of soil CO2 fluxes in the Cassiope heath. The […]

Carbon Monitoring in Polygonal Ponds

This blog post was co-authored by Dr. Julia Boike and her team and Zhila Rashidi (Eosense) Hot Spots in a cold land The Lena River Delta in northern Yakutia, northeast Siberia, Russia, is one of the largest catchment areas (2,430,000 km2) in the Arctic. Polygonal structures, which are common components of arctic Siberian wetlands, are […]

AGU 2016

AGU 2016 HIGHLIGHTS  With a poster in one hand and coffee in the other, four of us from Eosense hopped on a flight to San Francisco, California in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday December 11, 2016.   We were among 25,000 other eager scientists heading to the 2016 American Geophysical Union Meeting (AGU16).  While […]

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 […]

Greetings from ESA 2016 in sunny Florida!

Greetings from ESA 2016 in sunny Florida!

I headed down to sunny Ft. Lauderdale last week in blistering heat, poster tube in hand, excited to attend the 101st Ecological Society of America conference. 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, […]

Hedgerow Management as a Viable GHG Mitigation Strategy: Does it work?

Hedgerow Management as a Viable GHG Mitigation Strategy: Does it work?

Hedgerow Management Strategies as Viable GHG Mitigation: Does it work? Hedgerows have been important parts of managed farmlands for centuries in Europe, traditionally used to mark land boundaries, preventing soil loss from wind erosion, and used for fuels if managed properly. Today they still offer these same benefits, however their ecological importance is highlighted as […]

Infrared Gas Analyzers vs. Gas Chromatography in Coastal Ecosystems

Infrared Gas Analyzers vs. Gas Chromatography in Coastal Ecosystems

Out with the old, in with the new? A recent study by Brannon and colleagues (2016) out of the Moseman-Valtierra Lab aimed to compare ye olde gas chromatograph (Shimadzu GC-2014) with the newer technologies of a cavity ring down spectroscopy (CRDS) gas analyzer (Picarro, Model G2508) and an off-axis integrated cavity output spectroscopy (OA-ICOS) analyzer […]
