Volcanologist Dr. Thomas Christopher, while speaking on radio earlier this week, discussed the measurement of CO2 levels in the soil.

“At present, we’ve started a new campaign, which is measure soil CO2, and, let me just give you a bit of background about that. The carbon dioxide that we measure in the gas plume only accounts for a portion of the carbon dioxide that the system produces, quite a bit of it actually comes up through the ground.” Dr. Christopher said.

The CO2 level in the soil is measured by inserting a probe like device into the ground in order to collect data.

He said that this CO2 soil measurement campaign will be his main focus going forward.
