In Depth: Researcher conducts collaborative soil gas sampling to advance Wyoming CarbonSAFE

“In addition to data from typical days, we’ve already seen the effects of a sudden spring blizzard which added over a foot of snow on top of the soil. That is data we never would have had if we collected soil gas manually.” - Charles Nye
