Soil Biological Activity 5 minutes


Measures CO2 concentration in a closed chamber over time. Often used to measure soil biological activity in samples of soil or compost either in the field or in the lab. The parameter of interest is the slope of the initial rise in mg C directly after closing the chamber. This protocol measures CO2 at 5 second intervals for ~5 minutes.
