Detecting gas-rich hydrothermal vents in Ngozi Crater Lake using integrated exploration tools: a new scientific report on NATURE Journal. Sudden gaseous emissions from volcanic lakes can represent a significant risk for people living in the neighbouring areas as well as for the environment, due to limnic eruptions caused by the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the…
The West Systems is the first laboratory in Italy to be accredited by ACCREDIA for the test for determining fluxes of CO2 and CH4. On 30 July, the West Systems laboratory obtained the ACCREDIA accreditation (no. 1779L) as a Test Laboratory for testing “Diffuse molar fluxes at the soil-air interface of carbon dioxide (CO2) and natural gas (CH4)”, in compliance with…

The measurement of soil respiration with the enclosure-based methods, such as the accumulation chamber, is carried out using cameras that are opaque to solar radiation when only the component deriving from the biochemical reactions of the soil is to be measured, excluding the contribution of the photosynthetic activity. In nature, photosynthesis is a process used…
