Short summary
Results are presented from a long-term field trial of a new eddy-covariance system optimized to measure N2O fluxes using less power than existing N2O EC systems (250 W vs 500–1000 W) while maintaining frequency response. The system operated outdoors continuously for 1.5 years and required minimal maintenance. Frequency response was determined in situ and showed the improvement in response time as compared to an older N2O EC system. This EC system showed promise for deployment in remote areas.
