The AP200 is a complete, integrated CO2 and H2O atmospheric profile system. It measures carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O) concentration from up to eight intakes, which are normally spaced along the height of a tower to give a vertical profile. The AP200 is often used in conjunction with an eddy-covariance system to measure the storage term and provide you with a more complete measure of the surface gas exchange.Read More

The intake tubes can be quite long—up to a few hundred meters. Contact Campbell Scientific to ask about specific requirements for an application.
The AP200 supports automatic zero/span from once per day to once each averaging period (typically 30 minutes). A zero/span once a day will mitigate zero/span drift caused by seasonal temperature changes and long-term drift in the IRGA. More frequent zero/span (hourly) will also correct for any small drift associated with 24 hour temperature swings.
The intake heaters are wired in parallel, so that each heater sees a nominal 12 Vdc.
The number of intakes required at a site depends on the characteristics of the canopy. For example, the canopy’s height and density directly affect the change in CO2 and H2O concentrations. Order enough intakes to accurately profile these concentration changes. The AP200 may be ordered with anywhere from four to eight intake assemblies.
The spacing depends on the canopy and atmospheric conditions. It is important to know where the concentration gradients are the steepest.
For example, in a low agricultural crop canopy, it may be appropriate to use a logarithmic distribution within and near the top of the canopy, and a linear distribution above the canopy: 0.2 m, 0.4 m, 0.8 m, 1.6 m, 3.2 m (logarithmic) and 5 m, 7 m, 9 m (linear).
