LI-COR Systems Selected for Nationwide Measurement of Evapotranspiration in China

LI-COR Systems Selected for Nationwide Measurement of Evapotranspiration in China

To better understand and control drought and water management for China’s 1.3 billion people, a Chinese research project selected LI-COR Biosciences and its eddy covariance system for nationwide use. The Chinese Ecosystem Research Network (CERN) is measuring a portion of the water cycle called evapotranspiration, a combination of evaporation and transpiration (from plants) on a large “ecosystem-wide” scale to provide insights into water-use efficiency, drought and water management issues.

An expansion…

Protecting Your Cables

It is often necessary to lay cables and hoses on the ground when installing instrumentation at field sites. For short term deployments, this may not cause problems. For longer-term deployments, however, exposed cables or hoses at ground level are going to have problems. Damage can occur from ultraviolet radiation, submersion in standing water, gnawing by rodents or other small animals, or stepping on the cables when servicing the site.

It is quite easy to prevent these kinds of problems before…
