Abstract

This paper describes a facility designed to simultaneously generate complex climatic and pollutant conditions for research into the effects of climate and air pollution on plants. The system, commissioned in 1985, consists of a set of 4 environmental chambers which are each equipped with four identical subchambers. These 4 subchambers are subjected to identical climatic conditions, but are equipped with independent gas supplies. The chambers are designed to operate within a temperature range of -20 to +40° C at a relative humidity of 20 to 95 % with an illumination system providing high light intensities at a spectrum very close to sunlight. A computer controlled fumigation system allows the injection of various gases singly and in combination at concentrations between 0.005 to l,000 ppm (SO2, NOx, O3, CO2, PAN).
