The University operated a greenhouse gas monitoring station located on rice fields
The greenhouse gas monitoring station will support and provide information on climate change and greenhouse gases for managemt agencies and researchers to plan local development policies.

Greenhouse gas monitoring station is a cooperation project among the University of Natural Sciences, National University of Ho Chi Minh City and the Institute of Global Change Research (CzechGlobe). The first greenhouse gas monitoring station was placed on rice fields in the buffer zone of Lang Sen wetland reserve (Long An province). The station was officially put into operation in April 2019.

According to Dr. Pham Quynh Huong, Director of Center for Greenhouse Gas and Climate Change, University of Natural Sciences, National University of Ho Chi Minh City, the ecosystem of wet rice fields is the ecosystem that accounts for the largest proportion, and is The most important form of land use is in the Lang Sen wetland reserve buffer zone in particular and the Mekong Delta in general. These ecosystems contribute significantly to the amount of greenhouse gases emitted in the region and globally.

However, information on sources of greenhouse gas emissions for inventories as well as development of strategies and control solutions is still incomplete. Long enough monitoring in highly representative ecosystems, such as wet rice fields can provide sufficient information to understand the carbon balance in these systems.
