Short summary
We studied how many measurements are needed to correctly represent the soil respiration flux, mostly to help researchers who do not have automatic chambers to perform these measurements, so they can sample as seldom as possible. Our results show that for our site conditions, at least two measurements should be made in one day, one of which should be made at night-time. We also found that it is more important to make more field campaigns than measuring more times in one day.
