Air Quality

Air quality science looks at the degree to which the ambient air contains pollution. There are several factors that can affect air quality, both natural—such as from volcanic eruptions or dust—as well as human-induced. Significant outdoor sources of anthropogenic air pollution include carbon dioxide (CO2) from vehicles and aircraft, as well as methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3) from raising livestock. Indoor sources include formaldehyde (H2CO) from household products and carbon monoxide (CO) from gas stoves. Air quality monitoring networks include satellites, airborne sampling, and ground methods.

Product Model Measurements

G2103 Gas Concentration Analyzer

The Picarro G2103 gas concentration analyzer provides precise, real-time measurement of ammonia (NH3) and water (H2O) vapor. It incorporates coated components in the critical gas pathway. This reduces the propensity of NH3 molecules to adhere to pathway surfaces, which improves measurement response time.

G2108 Gas Concentration Analyzer

The Picarro G2108 gas concentration analyzer provides precise, real-time measurement of hydrogen chloride (HCl) and water (H2O) vapor at parts-per-trillion (ppt) sensitivity with negligible drift for atmospheric science and air quality applications.

G2108

G2203 Gas Concentration Analyzer

The Picarro G2203 gas concentration analyzer provides simultaneous, precise measurement of methane (CH4) and acetylene (C2H2) at parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity with negligible drift for measuring fugitive emissions of CH4 from landfills, or other extended CH4 sources, using a C2H2 tracer measurement for quantifiable emission rates.
