The LI-7200 is a compact, enclosed CO2/H2O analyzer that combines the benefits of open and closed path gas analyzers. It is an integrated system designed to provide measurements in harsh weather conditions and environments, with impressively low power consumption.
- The LI-7200 makes fast, precise CO2 and H2O measurements that allow you to capture small density changes at high speeds, over a wide range of concentrations.
- The LI-7200 outputs dry mole fraction, which significantly improves and simplifies flux calculations and improves CO₂ budget estimates.
- The LI-7200 can be used in remote locations without access to mains power, so you can make flux measurements where you want without being limited by infrastructure. Image credit: Fluxpyr
- The LI-7200 provides high quality data regardless of wind direction when used with omni-directional sonic anemometers.
- The LI-7200 makes continuous measurements through rain, snow, and fog, so you have fewer, smaller data gaps.
- The LI-7200 analyzer mounts atop flux towers so it can be used with a short intake tube optimized for eddy covariance measurements.
