e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

A System for the Measurement of Vertical Gradients of CO2, H2O and Air Temperature within and above the Canopy of Plant


This technical report describes a gradient system for characterizing the vertical gradients of CO2, H2O, and air temperature within and above the canopy of plants. The system is low in cost. and easy to use. The instruments were fitted and placed in one box with a total weight of about 10 kg. The box can be carried and moved from one site to another. The features of this apparatus are high frequency sampling cycle as short as l min per cycle for all six measurement levels and fast response gas analyzer for measurement as short as l Os per level. Two exhaust pumps, one sampling pump, six 3-way solenoid valves, and flow meter were used to insure simultaneous flow rate of air in all tubes from all measurement levels. This system transfers data from the data-logger directly to the add-in Spreadsheet of Microsoft Excel by using an Ethernet cable to automatically convert. digital data to scientific units in less time. This system also allows the use of multiple micro-environmental sensors that can be sampled at the same time. It is useful not only for agricultural ecosystems but is also adequately sensitive and rapidly responds to the gas analyzer with a modifiable flow rate meter for use in forest ecosystems. This system also has potential for use in the measurement of CO2, H2O, associated environmental elements, and CO2 storage flux within the canopy of plant, and other processes including a CO2 sink and source.
