CO2/CH4/H2O Analyzer


Our research focuses on the global carbon cycle and its changes linked with the global warming.We are working on a long term obseravation of atmospheric greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane in order to understand mechanisms of spatio-temporal variations of their concentrations.

Japan Meteorological Agency is operating an atmospheric monitoring station at Minamitorishima. Our instruments are installed in the Minamitorishima station. Here is a picture of the analyzer for CO2 and CH4 (above) and the measurement system for Radon-222 (bottom).

We are testing a recently advanced spectroscopy instrument of WS-CRDS with JMA and try to develop the next generation measurement system for the atmospheric monitoring.
