Testing Novel CO2 Soil Flux Measuring Equipment and its Use in Monitoring Permafrost Activity

The International Symposium on The Cryosphere in a Changing Climate was hosted by Victoria University of Wellington from February 12 to 17, 2017, in Wellington, New Zealand.

Ronald Layden from the Aurora Research Institute at Aurora College in Yellowknife, NT attended and presented his poster on “Testing Novel CO2 Soil Flux Measuring Equipment and its Use in Monitoring Permafrost Activity.”  He was monitoring the permafrost activity in the Inuvik area of the Northwest Territories of Canada using Eosense’s standalone soil CO2 flux sensor with built-in datalogger, the eosFD.  The eosFD uses Eosense’s patented Forced Diffusion technology to measure the soil flux directly.  Layden left the eosFD‘s in the field for 10 days.  See the results in his poster.

After this study was completed the eosFD‘s were deployed at Aurora College in the snow pack for the remainder of the winter.
