GF-500 HT Gas Flux Autosampler. The exchange of gaseous compounds between the atmosphere and different types of surfaces has received increasing interest, not the least in connection with studies of large-scale pollution problems, climate change and biogeochemical cycles.
allows for a high-throughput surveying of emissions of your trace gases of interest. A common application would be the monitoring of soil samples or microcosms under controlled laboratory settings in a climate chamber. As the system allows for closed-chamber measurements but the samples are incubated within one environment, the standardisation of environmental parameters is beyond commonly applied closed chamber/flask measurements. The autosampler has been successfully tested with PP Systems IRGA and Picarro Isotope Analysers and will be integrated with Qubit CO2 IRGA and other gas analysers.
Soil respiration is an important process involving the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) by soil microorganisms during the decomposition of organic matter. Measuring soil respiration in the laboratory can provide valuable information about the rate of CO2 production and the underlying biological processes. Here are some reasons and ways to measure soil respiration in the laboratory:
How to measure soil respiration in the lab:
Overall, laboratory measurements of soil respiration can provide valuable insights into the processes of soil carbon cycling and help inform management practices that can improve soil health and mitigate climate change.
