Ocean Science

Ocean Science is the study of the physical, chemical, and biological properties of the ocean. The ocean and its organisms play a critical role in elemental cycling processes—such as those of carbon (C) and oxygen (O)—acting as both a sink and source for greenhouse gases. Examining distribution and trends of these gases, as well as using proxy methods (e.g. isotopic signatures), can illuminate past and present climate and guide understanding of oceanic and atmospheric processes. Sampling methods include ship or air-based methods, SCUBA diving, remotely or autonomously operated underwater vehicles, and satellite observations.

Peripherals

Product Model Measurements

Induction Module

The Picarro Induction Module enables scientists to perform isotope analysis of matrix-bound water with high total-dissolved solids.
A0213

Micro-Combustion Module

The Picarro Micro-Combustion Module (A0214) effectively removes spectral interference for commonly occurring alcohols and plant products.

A0214

Continuous Water Sampler

The Picarro Continuous Water Sampler incorporates a porous membrane that enables diffusive sampling of water isotopes.

A0217

AutoMate FX

When a Picarro δ13C-CO2 analyzer is coupled with an Automate FX sample preparation device, the system provides δ13C measurements of the dissolved inorganic carbon in water samples or δ13C in solid carbonate samples. The Automate FX adds phosphoric acid to the samples to liberate CO2, which flows to the Picarro for δ13C-CO2 analysis.
