Gas and heat emission measurements at Solfatara Plateau Thermal Area, Yellowstone National Park (May-September 2017)

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

From May to September 2017 measurements of gas and heat emissions were made at Solfatara Plateau Thermal Area, an acid-sulfate, vapor-dominated area in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. An eddy covariance system measured half-hourly CO2, H2O and sensible and latent heat fluxes, air temperature and pressure, wind speed and direction and soil moisture. A Multi-GAS instrument measured (0.5 Hz frequency) atmospheric H2O, CO2, SO2 and H2S volumetric mixing ratios, air pressure, temperature and relative humidity and wind speed and direction. Soil temperature at 30 cm depth and CO2 flux were also measured on a grid across a 0.11 km2 area using thermocouple probes and the accumulation chamber method, respectively. The eddy covariance, Multi-GAS and soil CO2 flux and temperature data sets are saved in spreadsheets in the *.csv format.
