EDF/Google Earth/CSU Project Uses LI-COR Analyzer to Detect and Map Urban Methane Leaks

EDF/Google Earth/CSU Project Uses LI-COR Analyzer to Detect and Map Urban Methane Leaks

Measuring methane and other gas leaks from the pipes beneath America’s largest cities will help track preventable sources of environmental pollution. Cars equipped with methane measuring instruments to map leaks within cities is part of a major joint initiative. LI-COR Biosciences, a world leader in instrument systems for environmental research, today announced its involvement in this major initiative of the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), Google Earth Outreach, and Colorado State University (CSU).

LI-COR provides a unique measurement technology – the LI-7700 Open Path CH4 Analyzer…

Testing the limits with the LI-8100A

Testing the limits with the LI-8100A

The LI-8100A is an automated soil flux measurement system that can be used to measure soil fluxes with varying rates of emission. While typical measurements are made on flux rates that range from 0.5 to 10 µmol CO2 m-2 s-1, the LI-8100A can be used to measure much higher fluxes with a small modification as discussed in Technical Note #136, or much lower flux rates with appropriate setup. There are different ways to characterize low flux detecting limit of measurements…
