Bucket Gassers CO2 Lab by GLBRC & C. Kohn Name: Hour Date: Date Assignment is due: Fri 9-17 Why late? Day of Week Date If your project was late, describe why Team Members: D AY 1 1. With your Research Team and in the space below, draw, diagram, or describe all of the factors that affect how carbon gets into the soil and how much CO 2 is released by the soil. Try to use all of the space below. 2. Pick 4 different areas around the school. Predict which areas will have the highest CO 2 release from the soil and which areas will have the lowest. Then provide an explanation for why that area will have comparatively high or low CO 2 emissions. NOTE: it will probably be easiest if you choose drastically different areas. Suggestions include the football field, the woodchipped areas around the school, the school forest, etc. a. Area 1 (describe): Do you think this area will have higher or lower CO 2 emissions? Circle one: High Medium Low Why? b. Area 2 (describe): Do you think this area will have higher or lower CO 2 emissions? Circle one: High Medium Low Why?

c. Area 3 (describe): Do you think this area will have higher or lower CO 2 emissions? Circle one: High Medium Low Why? d. Area 4 (describe): Do you think this area will have higher or lower CO 2 emissions? Circle one: High Medium Low Why? 3. Your challenge tomorrow will be to (as a research team) pick the area that has the highest or the lowest CO 2 emissions among all 12 chosen by this class. Later you will test the CO 2 emissions from this area with a soil outgasser (or “bucket gasser”). This is simply a modified 5-gallon pail that traps the CO 2 released by the soil for later measurement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
