Air Chemistry Laboratory

The Air Chemistry Laboratory is located at the forward end of the foredeck. The laboratory is used primarily for underway atmospheric chemistry sampling.

The Air Chemistry Laboratory takes atmospheric air via the air sampling mast after passing through the Aerosol Laboratory. This laboratory also contains the greenhouse gas spectrometer system, a high-precision instrument that measures and analyses the atmospheric trace gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide and water vapour.
