Picarro's Superflux at the Cabauw Superstation: InGOS Flux Instrument Trial

While carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) currently contributes to two-thirds of anthropogenic radiative forcing, the effects from other greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as methane and nitrous oxide, remain largely uncharacterized and could significantly impact the future of global climate change. In order to address uncertainties in emissions, the Integrated non-CO

Dr. Joe Galewsky on Measuring Water Vapor in the World’s Driest Desert

I had the opportunity to speak with one of our customers, Dr. Joe Galewsky of the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque, on his long term water vapor isotope monitoring project in Chile. The location offers a unique opportunity to understand how climate change is affecting the atmospheric water vapor

NASA and Picarro's Alpha Jet Collaboration

My name is Rebecca Vincent. I attend Gunn High School and am interning at Picarro for the summer. I had the opportunity to visit the NASA Ames Research Center with several colleagues, Yoonah Danskin, Melissa Palmer, and Gloria Jacobson to watch the launch of the Alpha Jet on this-year’s GOSAT

The Promise of Natural Gas

Natural gas will not live up to its promise without the vital support of a society focused on transparency. One mustn’t look too far to find a story about natural gas production - whether from the perspective that it will transform the global economy or drive the climate past the

Mid IR and the Transparency Spectrum

With the release of our newest instrument, the G5101- i for N 2 O concentration and isotope analysis, Picarro is ready to give scientists (not to mention policy makers and concerned citizens) more insight into the global nitrogen cycle and its interdependence with agriculture, climate, and the Earth’s natural ecosystems.

The Methane Road Less Taken: Surveying Terrestrial CH4 from an RV

UC Santa Barbara scientists, Dr. Ira Leifer, Paige Farrell and Dan Culling recently completed a methane measurement transect of the southern US while en-route to deliver their Picarro flux analyzer to a waiting ship in Louisiana. The Picarro analyzer and other equipment was originally intended only for shipboard measurements, but
