AN0004 – Examining the thermal impact of the eosGP on its environment

The Eosense CO2 Gas Probe (eosGP) measures CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, soil, and shallow water. In some applications, such as soil respiration studies, the rate at which CO2 is produced is strongly temperature dependent (Lloyd and Taylor, 1994). Temperature sensitivity of soil respiration, as quantified by Q10 values, indicates the factor by which soil respiration increases in response to a temperature increase of 10 degrees Celsius (Yi et al., 2013). Figure 1 shows the spatial pattern of optimal Q10 values as presented by Zhou et al. (2009).
