Extensive Green Roof Carbon Dioxide and Methane Fluxes

Extensive Green Roof Carbon Dioxide and Methane Fluxes

Recap On October 6th, Eosense and the Lundholm Lab set up 4 eosAC automated soil flux chambers with a Los Gatos Research Ultraportable Greenhouse Gas Analyzer (UGGA) on the Atrium Green Roof at Saint Marys University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Using the eosAC/UGGA system, carbon dioxide and methane fluxes were monitored during a week-long period […]

Running your Picarro GasScouter and eosAC Off-Grid – Part 3

Running your Picarro GasScouter and eosAC Off-Grid – Part 3

Introduction We deployed the GasScouter and eosAC system at Dalhousie University’s Bio-Environmental Engineering Centre (BEEC).  BEEC is a research and demonstration site operated jointly by the Faculty of Agriculture’s Engineering Department and Dalhousie University’s Department of Biological Engineering. We set up the system on a constructed wetland at the BEEC site (normally used for studying […]

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, […]

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 […]

AGU15 Poster Highlight: Moyo Ajayi

AGU15 Poster Highlight: Moyo Ajayi

Another poster from AGU 2015 that we didn’t think should be missed! Moyo Ajayi (M.S. candidate) presented some findings from his research being done out of Vanderbilt University under the supervision of Dr. John Ayers. Natural gas is becoming a favoured means of energy production due to its relatively low carbon dioxide emissions. Consequently, High Volume […]

AGU15 Poster Highlight: Dr. Whendee Silver

AGU15 Poster Highlight: Dr. Whendee Silver

We wanted to make sure this poster didn’t slip past anyone’s radar, which is why were are highlighting it with this post. Dr. Whendee Silver’s team at University of California (Berkeley) showcased an excellent poster at the AGU 2015 Conference in San Francisco on their recent research in Puerto Rico looking at how soil oxygen and redox […]
