DIK-0450 : Soil Respiration System with Datalogger and GPS
Soil respiration is a key ecosystem process that releases carbon from the soil in the form of CO2. CO2 is acquired from the atmosphere and converted into organic compounds in the process of photosynthesis. Plants use these organic compounds to build structural components or respire them to release energy. When plant respiration occurs below-ground in the roots, it adds to soil respiration.
DIK-0450 Soil Respiration System anyone is easily possible to measure CO2 in soil with just putting this device on the ground. From the short-term to long-term measurement is widely applicable. It is designed to measure four element, Soil CO2, Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric pressure.
Soil CO2 datalogger enable to record measurement data, A fan and the open/close valves are automatically controlled according to the measurement. Under measurement air is shut and circulated inside chamber by a fan. After measurement, air is ventilated through inside and outside with opening a valve.
Datalogger with built-in GPS can acquire position information at the same time.
By connection an optional chamber under the measurement chamber, it is possible to observe the plant assimilation and also the breathing outbreak gas measurement of small animal.
- This equipment possible to measure Soil CO2, Temperature, Humidity, Barometric pressure.
- It is best for on-site measure of soil respiration.
- Measurement control datalogger records valuable data.
- Large data storage in 2 GB Micro SD cards.
- Digital Datalogger with GPS records valuable data and pinpoint location at the same time.
- Continues use 8 hours in field without battery charge.
- Easy to use & one person can handle
