University of St Andrews: Thermo TRACE Gas Chromatograph Ultra

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


The instrument is a gas chromatograph which is equipped with two FIDs (flame ionization detector) for carbon dioxide and methane. It also inclues an ECD (electron capture detector) for nitrous oxide. These are used for analysis of discrete air samples either injected by manual injection or via an auto-sampler.

The Thermo TRACE Gas Chromatograph Ultra (Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. USA) instrument is hosted at the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences, University of St Andrews.

This instrument measures concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide in discrete air samples.

Parameters listed in associated data files include: net_carbon_dioxide_flux, net_methane_flux, net_nitrous_oxide_flux

Abbreviation: st-andrews-gc-fid
Keywords: st-andrews-gc-fid, gas chromatograph, flame ionization detector, FID, GC, electron capture detector, ECD
