How the landscape influences GHGs in tropical forests

Posted · Add Comment

A case study from Eosense: Tropical rainforests are large sources of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4), which are known to be potent greenhouse gases (GHGs). Despite this, greenhouse gas flux in tropical rainforests is not well studied due to the difficulties of deploying and maintaining equipment. This gap in knowledge is […]

How accurate are our CO2 sensors?

Posted · Add Comment

A recent scientific study has found that the CO2 sensors found in many of the detectors supplied by Edaphic Scientific are highly accurate. Reseachers found that low cost, CO2 sensors have the same accuracy and performance as highly expensive laboratory equipment. Our range of Non-Dispersive Infra-Red (NDIR) CO2 sensors were found to have a 1:1 relationship […]

Monitoring CO2 in Shopping Centres

Posted · Add Comment

You have probably never noticed a CO2 (carbon dioxide) detector when you’re at the shopping centre buying new clothes or shoes. More and more CO2 detectors are being installed in shopping centres to monitor CO2 for comfort and energy savings. Recently, the CO2meter.com Wall Mounted CO2 Detector with Alarm was installed for such reasons in […]

What do pH and photosynthesis have in common?

Posted · Add Comment

Photosynthesis is the synthesis of nutrients from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water driven by sunlight. pH is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration in a solution. It might not seem so obvious at first, but there are actually certain circumstances where a change in pH can tell you something important about photosynthesis. Take Figure 1 […]

5 reasons why CO2 levels are controlled at night

Author: Michael Forster, PhD.   Growers can artificially increase the amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) available to plants to improve growth and yield. Scientists call it “atmospheric fertilization” and growers have known for a long time that increasing CO2 can improve plant productivity. Adding additional CO2 around plants is similar to adding additional nitrogen […]

Many tropical marine species are starting to appear in temperate waters. Around Sydney, several tropical fishes, such as surgeonfish, have been observed. Corals have also been found to be overtaking algal forests off the coast of New South Wales. In New Zealand, tropical fishes have been observed in marine waters where they have never been seen […]

Increasing atmospheric greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, not only change our climate systems but are also changing the ways animals live and behave. Here are 7 weird ways CO2 is changing the lives of some of the animals we love.   1. koalas and the leaves they eat Koalas have a very […]

how plants communicate

Posted · Add Comment

can plants communicate with one another? This question is not as outrageous as it might at first seem. Certainly, plants are not like The Ents in the Lord of the Rings, coming to life and talking with one another. But scientists have amassed a large amount of evidence to suggest that plants do communicate with […]

– how do greenhouse gases fare?   The American Meteorological Society (AMS) has just released the State of the Climate Report for 2014. The report confirms the continuing trend of a gradually warming planet with 2014 recorded as the warmest year on record. Accordingly, sea surface temperatures and global sea levels were at a record […]
