Running your Picarro GasScouter and eosAC Off-Grid

Author: Nick Nickerson, Eosense Gas analyzers have become increasingly more precise over the past 10 years with the adoption of laser-based sources and ultra-long path length optical cells. However, usually this has been at the cost of power consumption, making them difficult to easily deploy in the field, especially off-grid.

Video: Advanced Technology Spots Gas Leaks

If you saw one rolling through the neighborhood, you might mistake it for a Google maps car, but for more than a year and a half, PG&E has been cruising for gas leaks, using Ford Explorers that are actually super-sensitive, gas detection vehicles. (KGO-TV)

美国海岸警卫队希利 (Healy) 号破冰船实施北极水循环和碳同位素循环研究:阿拉斯加楚科奇海,2016 年 7 月

The hydrologic and carbon cycles in the Arctic are currently changing in conjunction with climatic transitions. This includes changes in sea ice extent and thickness, Arctic Ocean pH, and patterns of primary productivity and food web dynamics. Additionally, sea ice related changes in evaporation processes are influencing winter and summer precipitation regimes and broader scale climatic patterns. For example, Arctic vortex shifts allow more Arctic air to reach lower latitudes, which can result in more frequent extreme weather events in the northeast United States.

A Wonderful Video Introduction to Stable Isotope Analysis for Food Safety

Concerns about food safety and food origins are increasing around the world as our understanding of the potential health risks of adulterated food grows and consumers become aware of the risks of fraudulent food products that have been diluted with lower quality substitutes. Picarro's technology is at the forefront of the fight against food adulteration. Our isotopic analyzers allow scientists and regulators to analyze food ingredients to determine whether the food is genuine and came from where its label says it came from.
