Picarro Celebrating Scientific Community at AGU 2019


Picarro returns to AGU Fall Meeting with Impressive Gas Concentration Product Offerings Supporting Atmospheric, Lithospheric and Hydrospheric Science

Santa Clara, CA — November 21, 2019 — Picarro Inc., a leading provider of gas concentration and stable isotope analyzers and systems for science and industrial applications, will once again be attending the annual American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting conference and exhibit. This year’s event is scheduled from December 9-13 in San Francisco, CA, USA. Picarro is excited to support this year’s theme of “Celebrate The Past, Inspire The Future” with new community outreach and opportunities for engagement including a Factory Tour at Picarro Headquarters, a Research Community census board, and a selfie wall for shouting out love for our amazing planet.

Picarro will be exhibiting in booth #829.

Several Picarro poster presentations have been accepted for this year’s event including:

  • Novel, real-time measurements of ethylene oxide using a Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer (CRDS)
    Monday, 9 December 2019; 08:00 - 12:20 (Abstract Number: A11I-2681)
  • High-precision cavity ring-down measurements of ẟ13CO2 and ẟ13CH4 along the Eastern North Atlantic onboard the sailing research vessel Fleur de Passion
    Monday, 9 December 2019; 13:40 - 18:00 (Abstract Number: B13O-2505)

    Thursday, 12 December 2019; 08:00 - 12:20 (Abstract Number: A41K-2774)
  • A Spectral Analysis Method to Eliminate Methanol and Ethanol Interference with CRDS Measurements of Water Isotope Ratios: Insights, Opportunities, and Challenges
    Thursday, 12 December; 8:00-12:20 (Abstract Number: H41Q-1962)

Picarro isotope and gas concentration analyzers planned for display in booth 829 include:

The Picarro G4301 GasScouterTM Mobile Gas Concentration Analyzer is a new generation extra-lightweight and portable, battery-powered analyzer designed for science on the move. It enables the simultaneously measurement of CO2, CH4 and H2O concentrations over a wide dynamic range, allowing effective background, emissions, and soil flux measurements, among many potential applications.

The Picarro G2508 Gas Concentration Analyzer provides simultaneous, precise measurement of nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), and water (H2O) vapor at parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity with negligible drift for agriculture soil science, ecology, and emissions quantification. It operates in open or closed systems, and it easily integrates with chamber systems.

The Picarro L2140-i Analyzer delivers high-precision measurements for advanced research into all aspects of the water cycle―water vapor, liquid water or water trapped in solids―and for demanding applications such as paleoclimatology and oceanography.

Plus, a sneak peek reveal of our newest technology platform.
