Conceptual Consideration 4

In evaluating solute mass balance of shallow saline systems, one might wish to record the gas phase loss as well as loss to solid phase mineral precipitation. Whereas mineral precipitation is readily visible and mass estimates can be reasonably made, gas losses are invisible and not commonly measured. How would you estimate, or measure, gas losses from a shallow saline system?
