Carbon Dioxide Detector- Licor Fluxmeter

Carbon Dioxide Detector- Licor Fluxmeter

The WEST Systems Fluxmeter is a portable instrument for the measurement of diffuse degassing phenomena, based on the accumulation chamber method, suitable for volcanic and geothermal areas as well as soil respiration rate in agronomy. This method studied for soil respiration in agronomy (Parkinson, 1981) and for soil degassing in volcanic areas (Cioni et al. 1998), has been designed by WEST Systems to obtain a portable instrument that allows the performance of measurements with very good accuracy in a short time.

Continuous Monitoring Station

Continuous Monitoring Station

The instrument allows measurement of the soil degassing of carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, methane and of the related environmental parameters.

Applications for Continuous Monitoring Station

  • vulcanology to understand the dynamics of volcanoes and for a global evaluation of the hazard connected with volcanic activity;
  • monitoring of geothermal areas;
  • soil respiration;
  • survey of landfill biogas emissions.

Gravity Meter- gPhoneX

gPhoneX Gravimeter

The Micro-g LaCoste gPhone gravity meter uses the Zero-Length Spring™ sensor technology to provide microGal repeatedly with vey low static drift which makes it the best suited as a monitoring meter. Whether you are interested in earthquake or volcanic studies, earth tide  or reservoir monitoring, the gPhone will out perform all others.  The gPhone can also be used as an ultra sensitive low frequency seismometer for these areas of studies. The gPhoneX gravity meter is based upon the LaCoste and Romberg technology that has dominated land gravity meters since 1939.
