Determination of the Gaseous Air Pollutant Uptake of a Spruce Branch by Means of the Enclosure Technique

Abstract

With respect to generally known problems and conditions by applying the vegetation enclosure technique to determine the CO2 gas exchange and, with this the air pollutant uptake by the plant, a chamber system which holds a spruce branch in the tree canopy has been developed and tested in a field experiment at a measuring site in the northern Black Forest. During an initial test phase chamber housing absorptions of air pollutants NO, NO2, O3, SO2 as well as CO2 were continuously measured under real variational conditions. The absorbed fractions were taken into account for the determination of the net gaseous air pollutant uptake of an enclosed branch of a highly damaged 80 years old Norway spruce during a continuous measuring period of 19 summer days.
