Open-path analyzers were calibrated approximately every two-six months with two standard CO2 gases of 0 ppmv and 500 ppmv. The gain of CO2 of the closed-path analyzers (Li-820, LI-COR, USA) was checked one a day by flowing two standard CO2 gases of 0 ppmv and 500 ppmv, that were automatically controlled using CR10X (Campbell, USA).
