Irgason - Integrated IRGA and 3D Sonic Anemometer
Campbell Scientific are pleased to announce the IRGASON, the only integrated in-situ open path gas analyser and 3D sonic anemometer specifically designed for eddy covariance studies. Combining the two sensors into a single instrument has several important benefits including increased aerodynamics to minimise airflow disruption; lower power consumption; co-located measurement volumes, temporally synchronised measurements and simpler system installation.
The IRGASON simultaneously measures absolute carbon dioxide and water vapour densities, air temperature, barometric pressure, and three dimensional wind speed and sonic air temperature.
Used in combination with a Campbell Scientific CR3000 datalogger and Campbell's EC software the IRGASON forms part of Campbell's Eddy Covariance flux measurement system. The low power consumption of the IRGASON, means that such systems can now realistically be solar powered in most situations.
