Real-time soil flux measurements and calculations with CRDS + SFP: comparison among flux algorithms and derivation of system error
Soil flux chamber measurements are a key tool for determining production and sequestration of direct and indirect greenhouse gases. The Picarro G2508 Cavity Ring-down Spectrometer radically simplifies soil flux analyses by providing simultaneous measurements of five gases: CO2, CH4, N2O, NH3, and H2O, and by ready field deployment. The Picarro Soil Flux Software (SFP) provides a flexible user interface for Chamber Flux Error Evaluation. This poster highlights two types of errors in chamber flux measurements and demonstrates the SFP tools to evaluate these errors.
