eosGP carbon dioxide concentration probe

The eosGP is a compact, waterproof CO2 concentration probe for continuous, accurate, in situ monitoring in harsh environments, and can withstand anything from searing summers to freezing winters.

eosGP probes are used to collect carbon dioxide concentration data for research into challenges such as carbon sequestration in soil, rivers, and lakes.

Chief Scientist Nick Nickerson and I decided to take the equipment out for a weekend drive to gather some survey-style flux measurements.

We deployed the GasScouter and eosAC system at Dalhousie University’s Bio-Environmental Engineering Centre (BEEC).
