In-flight measurement of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and water (H2O)
Picarro G2301-m and G2401-m Analyzers
Generate precise, aircraft-based measurements of the two main greenhouse gases. Available with or without CO.
- Multiple species measured continuously in a single, compact instrument
- Parts-per-billion sensitivity, precision and accuracy with exceptionally low drift
- Aircraft, field and laboratory deployable
- Rugged design for guaranteed performance during flight.
Measurements of carbon monoxide are important in greenhouse gas monitoring, particularly in partitioning CO2 emissions. The Picarro G2401-m enables precise and simultaneous airborne measurements of CO, CO2, CH4 and water vapor at their respective ambient levels. If increased spatial resolution is needed, the Picarro G2301-m measures CO2, CH4 and water vapor at a 1 Hz data rate.
Both analyzers feature Picarro’s unique flight design elements to minimize effects of aircraft vibration, pitch, roll and rapidly changing ambient conditions. They can be operated on aircraft for urban mapping or vertical profiles and are equally well-suited for use as laboratory reference instruments.
