Automated Soil Gas Flux System
LICOR
LI-8100A

The LI-8100A (LI-COR) is an automated soil flux measurement system and is used to measure the soil CO2 fluxes with varying rates of emissions in different environments. Carbon dioxide flux is important for terrestrial C cycle and accurate estimates of CO2 fluxes are crucial for estimating C budgets in different environments. Automated LI-8100A chambers are designed to minimize perturbations to the surrounding environmental conditions and measurements artifacts the natural soil respiration. Both survey and long term chambers close automatically, eliminating variations caused by manual chamber placements, providing accurate and repeatable data on CO2 flux.

Research Facility



Boreal Ecosystem Research Facility
Memorial University, Grenfell Campus
Corner Brook
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

The Boreal Ecosystem Research Initiative (BERI) laboratories are a multidisciplinary research center located on the Grenfell Campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). The purpose of the BERI labs is to facilitate multidisciplinary research in the areas of Boreal ecosystem, agriculture and environmental sciences relevant to the Atlantic region of Canada.  

The facility is divided into a suite of 4 laboratories (preprocess, extraction, molecular and analytical) that house a range of equipment relating to molecular, bio-chemical, imaging, organic inorganic and field (physical soil, air and water) analyses and techniques.

BERI welcomes collaborations or access to conduct agriculture, boreal ecosystem and environmental science based research. Such collaborators include those from industry, government agencies, and academic institutions both nationally and internationally that are using the facility to advance their various research programs.
