Mapping in Real-Time

Mapping in Real-Time

Are you looking for a tool that will allow you to map real time CO2 concentrations? LI-COR recently unveiled a new accessory that has the ability to do just that. The CO2 Mapping Kit is designed to interface with the LI-8100A Automated Soil CO2 Flux System for measurements of ground level CO2 concentrations, showing spatial data (latitude, longitude) that can be integrated with soil CO2 flux observations.

The need for monitoring of greenhouse gases is growing as scientists look…

Building Carbon Budgets for Hawaii’s Forests

Building Carbon Budgets for Hawaii’s Forests

Quantifying how rising temperatures will impact soil carbon storage is crucial to predicting the future effects of CO2. Globally, soils contain more carbon than above-ground vegetation and the atmosphere combined. A research team led by Dr. Creighton M. Litton of the University of Hawaii aims to build carbon budgets for Hawaii’s forests, detailing the carbon inputs and outputs of the system. Using the LI-8100A Automated Soil CO2 Flux System, the research team measures soil-surface CO2 efflux to investigate how carbon…

Configuring the CSAT3 for Data Logging in .ghg Format

Configuring the CSAT3 for Data Logging in .ghg Format

A CSAT3 sonic anemometer (Campbell Scientific, Inc., Logan, UT) can be configured to log raw flux data in conjunction with an LI-7500A or LI-7200 infrared gas analyzer from LI-COR in a compressed .ghg file format. The .ghg file format makes it possible to continuously collect raw flux data for more than two months on a single 4 GB USB drive and to process data conveniently with LI-COR’s new EddyPro™ Express flux data processing software.

1. The CSAT3 is connected to…
