  • Conversion for Soil Flux

    This is for you smart people who love maths. Iím working on a field site with a co2 analysed. The co2 flux it calculates is measured in umol/m-2/s-1. I need to convert this into kg/ha-1/yr-1. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1 Ķmol/(m≤∑s) x 44 g/mol x 10000 m≤/ha x 86400 s/day x 365.25 days/year = 13885 kg/(ha∑yr)

    Note that /m-2 is redundant, both the slash and negative exponent are ways of saying "per" mathematically.
