Soil CO2 measurements

Once completed land leveling an other conditioning tasks, have been carried out, in the first week of March, systematic measurements of CO2 emissions in the soils of the site, selecting for this aim some representative points of the different work areas.

The last measurement of soils CO2 emissions before finishing the plantation for phytoremediation treatment was done in March 2014, during the fourth field campaign. Flows were measured in 27 respiratory rings (9 treatment zones x 3 replicates). After this, we proceeded to the rings removal to make way for planting.
