LI-COR Unleashes the Power of EddyPro®
January 14, 2014
LI-COR Biosciences announces the release of the SMARTFlux™ System, a new instrument for calculating the exchange of gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor between the land or water surface and the atmosphere.
This device brings the power of EddyPro® software to the field, processing eddy covariance data in real time.
“For the first time, final fluxes can be viewed in real time without further processing,” said Dave Johnson, LI-COR product manager. “Remotely accessing the fluxes gives instant information to those using the system.”
“It also makes this proven method more accessible to users outside the traditional research market. Water management and air quality are important issues in today’s world, and this system makes getting answers easier.”
At the heart of the SMARTFlux System is EddyPro software, the flux processing software used by scientists worldwide and adopted by major international flux networks, including AmeriFlux and ICOS. As LI-COR greenhouse gas analysis software collects raw data, biometeorological (biomet) data, and metadata, EddyPro software seamlessly processes these data to output fully corrected, real-time values.
