benthic flux chamber

Detailed Description

This image shows the benthic flux chamber designed by the USGS California Water Science Center’s biogeochemistry group. The chamber is placed on the sediment surface and water is sealed in the chamber. The water is then carried to instruments on the boat that monitor changes in water quality over a period of 30 to 60 mins.
