Monitoring Sites - Arcturus

Introduction | Contacts | Purpose | Site Description | Measurements | DEM | Pictures


The purpose of the Arcturus flux station was:

  • To gain an understanding of natural background carbon dioxide and methane fluxes in the region prior to carbon sequestration and coal seam gas activities take place.

  • To couple natural flux results with high precision greenhouse gas monitoring instruments (including isotope analysis) to be used for atmospheric dispersion modelling.

  • To assess the feasibility of using this type of instrumentation for baseline studies prior to industry activities that will be required to monitor and assess CO2 or CH4 leakage to atmosphere in the future.
