Abstract : Fluxes of biogenic volatile organic compounds VOC and methane were measured above a boreal fen. Vegetation on the fen is dominated by Sphagnum mosses and sedges. A relaxed eddy accumulation REA system with dynamic deadband was designed and constructed for the measurements. Methane, C2-C6 hydrocarbons and some halogenated hydrocarbons were analysed from the samples by gas chromatographs equipped with FID and ECD. A significant flux of isoprene and methane was detected during the growing seasons. Isoprene emission was found to follow the common isoprene emission algorithm. Average standard emission potential of isoprene was 680 µg m-2 h-1. Fluxes of other non-methane hydrocarbons were below detection limit.
