Abstract

A simple rubber membrane gas sampling device is described for
measuring soil oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. The O? measurements
are compared to results from the Pt electrode method and
found to show similar trends when soil respiration was low. The
membrane sensor samples a larger volume of soil and so its results
have lesser coefficients of variation than do oxygen diffusion rate
(ODR) measurements with Pt electrodes.
