Methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted from human activities. Atmospheric methane concentrations have tripled since pre-industrial times, and this increase has contributed about 20% of the global radiative forcing due to long-lived greenhouse gases. Quantifying sources of methane is therefore necessary to inform future climate change mitigation policy.

Picarro Soil Flux Measurements

In this webinar replay, learn about how Picarro's Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) technology can be used to measure soil gas flux in-situ. Dr. Nabil Saad (Picarro, Inc.) is joined by Dr. Jesper Christiansen (U. of Copenhagen) and Dr. Nick Nickerson (Eosense). Jesper and Nick have hands-on experience with Picarro's G2508 Soil Flux System and they share their experience and results in achieving lower detection limits in gas flux measurements during the webinar.

Liaison for connecting peripherals to a Picarro isotopic carbon analyzer

Listen to Adam Subhas (California Institute of Technology), Nick Rollins (University of Southern California) and Nabil Saad (Picarro, Inc.) discuss making accurate and precise total carbon and δ13C measurements on discrete samples using a Picarro Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer and the Liaison Introduction System. Adam and Nick will demonstrate how Picarro carbon isotope analyzers can be coupled to an Automate FX for seawater DIC measurements and solid carbonates, and to an Elemental Analyzer for organic carbon measurements and TOC. Adam will also share recent results from calcite dissolution experiments that are designed to probe the global carbon cycle and how the saturation state of the oceans can drive changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide. You can also view Subhas et al. (2015) here.

September 29, 2015

This webinar, featuring Riley Duren from NASA/JPL and Caltech, and Graham Leggett, Picarro, Inc., will focus on urban carbon emissions monitoring. Riley will share his experiences from deploying the LA Megacities Project and the goals of their research. Graham will present information about how Picarro technology has facilitated the development of such networks, including providing information on the Picarro G2301 and G2401 for best-in-class greenhouse gas (GHG) concentration measurements. If you are interested in learning about urban networks for monitoring GHGs, or considering deploying a network yourself, this is the webinar for you!
