The temperature and gas concentrations in a newly established pine-wood debris pile of 20 m×15 m×6 m in dimensions (approximately 400 tons of fresh weight material) were monitored for 150 days. Temperature was measured at ten different positions within the pile, while concentrations of CO2, O2, CO and CH4 were taken at four different representative locations. The pile was characterized by a strong temperature increase within the first 10–12 days of storage. Results of the gas analysis in this… CONTINUE READING
