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

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 […]

A medley of methods: Air-sea CO2 flux in seagrass

To understand how natural and anthropogenic processes will impact Earth’s current and future climate, climatologists rely heavily on complex computer models. However, these models are only as good as the data that is fed into them, making field based measurements and the instrumentation and methodologies used to gather them of vital importance. Estimates of natural […]
