Boston Urban Long-term Research Project (Image 5)

Equipment used to take carbon dioxide, water and methane measurements and meteorology measurements

Equipment used to take carbon dioxide, water and methane measurements, as well as meteorology measurements for the Boston Urban Long-term Research Area Exploratory (ULTRA-Ex) project sit on the roof of a building at Boston University.

ULTRA-Ex is a National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported research platform that investigates the space-time variation in metropolitan Bostons carbon metabolism. NSF offers these awards for projects that support interdisciplinary research on the dynamic interactions between people and natural ecosystems in urban settings. The program is investigating both natural and human influences on Bostons carbon metabolism.
