CO2/H2O Atmospheric Profile System

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
