- IAGOS-ERI (In-service Aircraft for a Global Observing System -- European Research Infrastructure)
, a preperatory phase infrastructure project funded by the EU, seeks to establish and operate a sustainable distributed infrastructure for longterm observations of atmospheric composition at the global scale from a large fleet of in-service aircraft. Our role is the integration of CO2 and CH4 instrumentation with high precision and fast response for integration onboard commercial airliners.
A collaboration with Russian and French colleagues.
Large scale transects over Siberia with the "Flying Laboratory" Antonov 30
operated by the Institute of Atmospheric Optics (IAO
) in Tomks. Our role will be flask sampling with subsequent analysis for CO2
, CO, CH4
O and the ratio O2
- BARCA (Balanco Atmosferico Regional de Carbono na Amazonia)
BARCA Information for participants
Development of an airborne In-situ Capability for O2/N2 measurements. The method will be VUV absorption, based on the development by Britt Stephens from NCAR.

- IAGOS (Integration of routine Aircraft measurements into a Global Observing System)
is an EU funded Design Study for New Infrastructure, targeted at observations of atmospheric composition and aerosols. Our role is the development of a prototype CO2
instrument with high precision and fast response for integration onboard commercial airliners.
