Evaluation of Disturbed Peatland/Forest CO2 Emissions by Atmospheric Concentration Measurements
Due to its portability in the field measurement of hot fires, a fiber Fabry-Perot interferometer was used to measure CO2 emissions from locations over a wide area and unpredictable local sources in forest/peatland fires near Parangka Raya, Indonesia, during the dry season of 2011. For nocturnal CO2 emission measurement from peatlands, a cost-effective methodology is proposed, with which data processing is easier than the conventional eddy covariant and chamber methods. With the tempearture-inversion trap method the CO2 flux from the peatlands in Parangka Raya was measured in 2013.
