High-Resolution Time-of-Flight Aerosol Mass Spectrometer 

The Aerodyne HR-ToF-AMS measures mass, chemical composition, and size of non-refractory submicron particles in real-time. It provides size-resolved composition information for particulate ammonium, nitrate, sulfate, chloride, and organics.

Automated Wet Chemistry Analyzer

The Seal AQ2 measures concentrations of ammonia-nitrogen, nitrate-nitrogen and nitrite-nitrogen, phosphate-P, and total phosphorus and silica.

Distributed Temperature Sensor

The Oryx DTS is an autonomous (0-5 km) – 4 channel, compact system designed for harsh and remote environments. DTS measures temperatures by means of optical fibers.

Electrical Resistivity and Induced Polarization Instrument (ERI)

The Syscak Pro Switch 48 Resistivity ERI is an all-in-one multi-node resistivity and induction polarization imaging system.

Fourier Transform Infrared Analyzer (FTIR)

The California Analytical Instruments 700 FTIR analyzer provides fast, continuous measurement of gases that have an infrared absorption spectrum.


The GSSI EMP-400 profiler is a powerful electromagnetic induction tool that was built using a proprietary source cancellation and calibration system to create superior signal stability. 

INNOVA Photoacoustic Multi-Gas Infrared Analyzer

The California Analytical Instruments 1412 IR is bench-top analyzer that can be used to measure any gas in the IR absorption spectrum.

Ion Chromatograph

The Dionex ICS-3000 Integrion HP Ion Chromatograph (HPIC) is equipped with an automated eluent generator. The HPIC measures concentrations of anions and cations.

LI-COR Portable Photosynthesis and Fluorescence System

The LI-6400XT is a gas exchange system that computes photosynthesis from differences in CO2 and H2O between in-chamber conditions and pre-chamber conditions.

Mercury Analyzer

The Milestone DMA-80 Direct Mercury Analyzer measures mercury concentrations in liquid and solid samples.

Particle Size Analyzer

The TSI Nanoscan SMPS Nanoparticle Sizer 3910 and Optical PSA is a portable real-time instrument quickly and accurately measures particles ranging three orders of size magnitude from 10 nanometers to 10 micrometers.

Stable Isotopes Water Analyzer

The Picarro L2130-I Analyzer measures stable isotopes (18O and 2H) in water.

Total Organic Carbon Analyzer

The Shimadzu TOC-VCPH measures total organic carbon, dissolved organic carbon, total inorganic carbon, dissolved organic carbon, total nitrogen, and total dissolved nitrogen.
