The LI-600 is designed to quickly survey broadleaves under ambient conditions.
The LI-600 brings together numerous innovative technologies to deliver fast, accurate, and dependable measurements in a compact, handheld device.
The LI-600 uses an open flow-through differential measurement for quantifying transpiration (E) and stomatal conductance on one side of the leaf. First, E is quantified by measuring the flow rate and water vapor mole fraction of air that enters and leaves the chamber. Meanwhile, total conductance to water vapor (gtw) is computed as a function of E and vapor pressure in the leaf and cuvette. Finally, stomatal conductance to water (gsw) is computed as a function of gtw and the boundary layer conductance to water vapor (gbw).
The advantages of the LI-600 measurement flow path include the following:
