Analysis Techniques

The chemistry laboratory of the Laboratoire d’Aerologie (LA) undertakes the analysis of all gaseous, particulate and precipitation samples from the active IDAF measurement sites. Three main analysis techniques are used:

All ion chromatography, pH and conductivity analyses carried out at the LA are evaluated through the WMO intercomparison studies. Measurements that do not meet or exceed the WMO standards are not included in the IDAF database.
