An integrated approach to gas analysis in soil cores was conducted to provide a novel method for observing the gas dynamics associated with upland soil ecosystems. Depth profiles of the O(2), Ar, CO(2), CH(4), N(2) and NO(x) concentrations in intact soil monoliths were obtained simultaneously using membrane inlet mass spectrometry (MIMS). This technique… CONTINUE READING
