The AP200 is a complete, integrated CO2 and H2O atmospheric profile system. It measures carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour (H2O) concentration from up to eight intakes, which are normally spaced along the height of a tower to give a vertical profile. The AP200 is often used in conjunction with an eddy covariance system to measure the storage term and give a more complete measure of the surface gas exchange.Read More

Possibly. For example, to measure advection because of a drainage flow on sloping terrain, an AP200 system could be deployed with two towers, upstream and downstream along the slope, with four intakes on each tower.
The AP200 supports automatic zero/span from once per day to once each averaging period (typically 30 minutes). A zero/span once a day will mitigate zero/span drift caused by seasonal temperature changes and long-term drift in the IRGA. More frequent zero/span (hourly) will also correct for any small drift associated with 24 hour temperature swings.
The LI-840A uses a heater to maintain its sample cell at +50°C. Therefore, it consumes a lot more power at lower temperatures. Below 0°C, the valve heater also requires some power to keep the valves warm.
The spacing depends on the canopy and atmospheric conditions. It is important to know where the concentration gradients are the steepest.
For example, in a low agricultural crop canopy, it may be appropriate to use a logarithmic distribution within and near the top of the canopy, and a linear distribution above the canopy: 0.2 m, 0.4 m, 0.8 m, 1.6 m, 3.2 m (logarithmic) and 5 m, 7 m, 9 m (linear).
Cylinders of zero air and CO2 span gas are needed. Each cylinder must have a pressure regulator. The cost for the two cylinders and two regulators may be approximately $1,000. Typically, there is also a nominal monthly fee to lease the cylinders. Contact Campbell Scientific for more detailed information.
A non-zero value can be used to perform a zero/span on an interval that is not synchronized to midnight (for example, every three hours starting at 0100 hrs).
