Quantifying carbon dioxide and methane efflux in the Mekong Delta in Cambodia and Vietnam

At Picarro, we enjoy hearing how research groups are using our systems in their projects. Christopher Hackney and Daniel Parsons from the University of Hull (UK) are working on a series of UK Research Council and Newton Fund funded projects(e.g. http://www.stelar-s2s.org) with partners from the Universities of Southampton, Exeter (UK), Illinois (USA) and Can Tho (Vietnam) and the Southern Institute of Water Resources Research (Vietnam)on the Mekong Delta in SE Asia.

O2, CO2, and Chlorophyll Walk into a Leaf...

As the research and development of renewable energy sources increases in momentum, it was great to have the opportunity to participate in the First European Photosynthesis Congress held at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden.

VHP of just 30 ppb can oxidize and ruin pharmaceuticals

As biologics have supplanted small molecules as the dominant focus for many leading pharmaceutical companies, robust manufacturing processes for isolators and RABS continues to be an evolving process. In this environment, as the need for significantly better VHP monitoring has grown quickly, Picarro H2O2 analyzers have increased in popularity.

Monitoring isotopic composition (δ18O, δD) of water vapor, precipitation and snow surface in the Antarctic region.

Anna Kozachek of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), Saint Petersburg has taken time to write a description of her team’s use of the Picarro L2130-i and L2120-i during the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE) project. The main goal of the expedition was to circumnavigate Antarctica, performing oceanographic and meteorological observations along the route as well as terrestrial observations on the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic islands. Learn more about their setup and overall findings.

Investigating Experimental Priming Effects in Anaerobic Decomposition of Peats from Discontinuous Permafrost in Canada

Accelerated rates of warming and wildfires in northern regions of Canada will result in an extensive thaw of permafrost peatlands and peat plateaus. This could result in the potential release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. The Department of Renewable Resources at the University of Alberta, Canada have taken time to explain how they are using the Picarro G2201-I analyzer and Small Sample Introduction Module (SSIM) to further investigate if substrate addition “primes” peat decomposition.

Optimize the Precision and Accuracy of Seawater and High-Saline Water Stable Isotope Measurements

This is the third, and final, post in a three-part series that examines how Picarro analyzers, systems, and accessories ensure precise, accurate measurements of challenging seawater and high-saline water samples. The first post, Water Stable Isotope Measurements of Seawater, presents results from an inter-laboratory study designed to evaluate the quality of cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) derived measurements compared with the consistency and values of isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) measurements.

Please Join Us at EGU 2018

If you are attending the 2018 EGU General Assembly from April 9 to 13 in Vienna, Austria, we hope you’ll stop by Picarro booth 28 and spend some time with Picarro team members. We welcome an opportunity to meet you and learn more about your ongoing research programs. And we’ll have Picarro isotope and gas concentration analyzers on display that may be of interest to you, including...

Stable Isotope Analysis of High-Saline Water

This is the second post in a three-part series that examines how Picarro analyzers, systems, and accessories ensure precise, accurate measurements of challenging seawater and high-saline water samples.

Water Stable Isotope Measurements of Seawater

We developed our water stable isotope analyzers, system peripherals, and accessories to give research scientists a less-expensive, easier-to-use solution for precise, accurate isotopic measurements. They’ve been used successfully in freshwater research for over a decade. More recently, scientists have tested our analyzers and systems, and we’ve continued to develop accessories to ensure precise, accurate measurements of more demanding seawater and high-saline water samples. This is the first of a three-part series that examines...
