This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ...budgets and the impact of measured atmospheric trace constituents on the radiation balance and hence on climate. Baseline Observatories. The four NOAA baseline observatories are excellently located for baseline monitoring of trace constituents. Measurements at other geographic locations may be useful and should also be considered by the applicant. Applicants are encouraged to make use of the existing observations for acquisition of data to support their own research interests. Analysis. Proper analysis and interpretation is fundamental to understanding the GMCC trace-constituent measurements. The final goal of our program is to understand the transport, modification, and budgets of these trace constituents. Applicants are encouraged to make use of the existing data base. Instruments and Techniques. GMCC develops measurement methods and standards. Instruments used include ozone spectrophotometers, lidar, chemiluminescent gas analyzers, infrared gas analyzers, gas chromatographs, radiometers, pyranometers, nuclei counters, and nephelometers. Research opportunities exist for instrument development and improvement and development of calibration techniques and standards. Advanced Techniques for Monitoring Atmospheric Trace Gases: Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and Capillary Column Electron Capture Gas Chromatography JWElkins 26.45.17.03 Environmental Research Laboratories Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory Boulder, Colorado One of the main purposes of the Geophysical Monitoring for Climatic Change (GMCC) program at NOAA is to monitor trace gas changes that may affect the climate. Two new techniques being developed to measure trace gases are Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and electron capture gas chromatography (ECGC) using...show more
