Our newest automated soil flux chamber* is the giant of our products. Its large durable design allows you to cover more area at your field site and the extra chamber height means you can observe the effects of small vegetation –  especially with the option for a transparent or opaque design. With the eosMX multiplexer connect up to 12 chambers to your Picarro, LGR or Gasmet analyzer for continuous measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous Oxide (N2O) multi-species gases. The eosAnalyze software enables processing of logged data on any Windows-based computer.


Soil Flux Chamber Technology

The new soil gas flux chamber uses the automated closed dynamic chamber technique (Pumpanen et al., 2004) for measurement of soil gas flux (CO2, CH4, N2O). Using the eosMX or eosMX-P multiplexer you can connect up to 12 eosAC devices to your gas analyzer.

Proven Design for Accuracy

The new soil gas flux chamber design leads the way with:

  • Slow raising/lowering that eliminates pressure effects during measurement
  • Vent design that ensures steady atmospheric pressure without compromising samples through back diffusion
  • Gas feed/return loop that promotes efficient mixing
Applications
  • NEE/CO2 flux
  • Agriculture N2O
  • Wetland CH4
Convenient

Setup of the new soil gas flux chamber is remarkably simple, so you are up and running fast. Its large size allows for a larger measurement area. With a reach of 30 m / 100 ft (15 m / 50 ft for LGR UGGA) for each chamber from the analyzer, you have a huge coverage area of about 2800 m2 / 30,000 ft2.
