Infrared spectrometer measurements of nitric (HNO3) and hydrochloric acid (HCl) from Arrival Heights using a Bruker 120M spectrometer
Entry ID: K085_1996_2008_NZ_1

Abstract: A Bruker 120M interferometer, a high resolution infrared instrument, was used to measure trace gases in the atmosphere (HNO3, HCl, CH4, N2O, CO, ClONO2) during the early spring from the time the sun returns until early November and also during the winter using moonlight at Arrival Heights. The Bruker replaces the Bomem interferometer previously in place as it has a greater maximum path length and ... View entire text
