Green roof monitoring system (instruments, dataloggers)

Equipment



Green roof monitoring system (instruments, dataloggers)
Campbell Scientific
CR1000

Quantify soil heat flux, soil temperature, moisture in green roof systems. Allows for long-term monitoring. We have several CR1000 dataloggers installed in permanent locations on two green roofs. We also have a full weather station on one of the roofs (pyranometer, anemometer, tipping bucket rain gauge etc.)

Campbell scientific: heat flux plates (28 on roof 1, 8 on roof 2); thermocouple temperature probes (54 on roof 1, 20 on roof 2)

Research Facility



Ecology of Plants in Communities Lab
Saint Mary's University
Halifax
Nova Scotia (NS)

Research in plant ecology: coastal barrens, urban ecology, green roofs, green infrastructure. The green roof research facility allows for quantification of ecosystem services and economic benefits of green roofs including reduction of building energy costs, contributions to stormwater management, provision of biodiversity habitat and carbon storage.
