Question (1)
I am interested in using a field-based Quantum Cascade Laser Absorption Spectrometer (QCL) for the injection of gas samples, derived from manual static chamber measurements. Some previous investigation has given me a good first insight in how to do so. However, talking about carrier gas flow rate, Torr pressure etc. - some hints to compare my ideas with would be highly appreciated.
Many thanks


Projects (2)
The core of this PhD is wrapped around the understanding and management of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from grazed pastoral land. Data will be collected by using an eddy covariance flux tower coupled to a quantum cascade laser to identify the response of N2O emissions to fertilisation, grazing intensity and sward diversity. The approach includes considerations on farm scale aiming to support New Zealand’s greenhouse gas inventory and potential mitigation strategies.
Archived project
The project combines master thesis and field related research in an applied way. Aiming for better understanding of nutrient cycling interlinked with investigating basic soil parameters, forest management strategies shall be developed and frame the broader context. By itself, the project is set up in cooperation to GIZ Mongolia (German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation), and, hence, the research is embedded within GIZ related ambitions under the project name: "Biodiversity and Adaptation of Key Forest Ecosystems to Climate Change II". Field related activities took place in Tunkhel, Mandal Soum. In order to apply some references to recent methodological advances and state of the art procedures in a national context, findings will be presented in an own sub-project also: "Analysing Forest Soils in Mongolia – Applied Methods for Field Examination" Work started in February 2016 and will be completed by April 2017.
