An Eddy Covariance Station (commonly also referred to as an EC System) is a highly accurate, reseach grade system that measures water vapour, CO2 or heat fluxes using the eddy covariance technique.
A standard system comprises of a CSAT3 Sonic Anemometer, a CR3000 data logger, CS7500 Open Path Infrared Gas Analyser and FW05 fine-wire thermocouple. Customers can also expand the number of sensors to suit the application requirements. If the system will be solar powered, we recommend at least a 64 watt solar panel. We also recommend ensuring that you have a meteorologist on staff for monthly calibration of sensors and data modelling purposes.
• Measures water vapour, carbon dioxide, and heat flux using Eddy Covariance techniques
• Key system components (each purchased separately):
o CR3000 (with the option of CR1000 or CR5000)
o CSAT3 Sonic Anemometer
o CS7500 Open Path Infrared Gas Analyser
