Net ecosystem exchange (NEE) describes the net carbon balance of an ecosystem. It is the net sum of an ecosystem’s CO2 uptake via photosynthesis (gross primary production, or GPP) and its CO2 emissions via microbial and plant respiration (ecosystem respiration, or ER) (Figure 1). Therefore, reliably measuring NEE and its components is key to understanding carbon cycling in natural ecosystems.

In this article we demonstrate the struggles of using chambers for measuring NEE and how our new eosAC-LT/LO is helping researchers overcome these challenges with it’s new design!
