As two of the most common greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, CO2 and H2O are vital aspects in any science-based curriculum. Accurate CO2 and H2O measurements are critical for understanding climate change and are key to understanding biological and physiological processes like respiration.
Through the LEEF program, faculty members can acquire the LEEF Gas Analysis Package which includes the LI-850 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer. The LEEF program also provides a grant that partially covers the cost of the package for any eligible institution.
The LEEF Gas Analysis Package helps teach students about their environment, including the importance of CO2 measurements in understanding a variety of natural processes. With this package, students can learn how to take accurate CO2 and H2O measurements.
The LEEF Gas Analysis Package is designed for general purpose measurements of CO2 and H2O in air. Students can learn how to take gas measurements in greenhouses, perform lab-bench flask measurements, measure respiration rates from organisms like insects, and conduct outdoor CO2 monitoring.
The LEEF Gas Analysis Package includes the LI-850 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer. With a built-in pump and display, simply power the instrument on for immediate measurements. The optical bench is easily cleanable by any user. This minimizes downtime and ensures long-term accuracy with minimal maintenance and no factory calibration. Students can view real-time measurements, configure graph settings, and setup logging options with intuitive Windows® and Mac® software.
Extend the capabilities of your natural sciences curriculum with the LEEF Gas Analysis Package. The LEEF program’s gas analysis package facilitates students’ understanding of various studies, such as CO2 and H2O measurements, respiration rates, and plant growth and productivity.
Curricula that study climate change, respiration, and gas exchange can use the LI-850 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer with students from all scientific backgrounds. For instance, the package helps teach students about food quality control and storage as well as indoor air quality management.
The high precision of the LI-850 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer is well-suited for measuring minute changes in gas concentration driven by respiration. It can easily be integrated in research on soil respiration by analyzing the metabolic activity of microbial soil communities. Students can also use the analyzer to measure the respiration rate of insects, small fruits, and other respiring organisms.
Accurate measurements of CO2/H2O are crucial for studying plant growth, plant productivity, and CO2 in air. This package is ideal for greenhouse and growth chamber monitoring; students can learn how to take steady-state measurements to monitor their greenhouses and growth chambers. Additionally, faculty can deploy the LI-850 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer in a wide variety of locations for long- and short-term atmospheric monitoring. This gives students the opportunity to experience long- and short-term concentration measurement techniques.
With the LI-850 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer and Trace Gas Sampling Kit, students have the ability to analyze controlled samples of gases.
