The Agilent 1200 Series evaporative light scattering detector (ELSD) is a powerful tool for sensitive detection of any compound that is less volatile than the mobile phase. It provides an essentially universal measurement under isocratic and gradient conditions independent of a compound’s absorbance, fluorescence or electro-activity. Low temperature evaporation technology enables detection of semi-volatile and thermally-sensitive compounds at low levels.

The energy balance Bowen ratio (EBBR) system produces 30-minute estimates of the vertical fluxes of sensible and latent heat at the local surface. Flux estimates are calculated from observations of net radiation, soil surface heat flux, and the vertical gradients of temperature and relative humidity (RH). Meteorological data collected by the EBBR are used to calculate bulk aerodynamic fluxes, which are used in the Bulk Aerodynamic Technique (BA) EBBR value-added product (VAP) to replace sunrise and sunset spikes in the flux data.

The InfraCal 2 TRANS-SP is recommended for measuring oil in water, TPH in soil or FOG in wastewater using the traditional EPA methods 413.2 and 418.1 or ASTM method D7066-04.  With over 3,500 oil and grease monitors in worldwide use today, InfraCal 2 analyzers, originally developed by Wilks, have become a standard for the petrochemical industry. These essential tools ensure that oil content levels are below the regulated limit in water, drill cuttings, and soil. The InfraCal 2 provides real-time results for all operators needing to monitor oil in water.

The LI-7000 CO2/ H2O Gas Analyzer is a high performance, dual cell, differential gas analyzer. It uses a dichroic beam splitter and two separate detectors to measure infrared absorption by CO2 and H2O in the same gas stream. At the heart of the LI-7000 is an innovative optical bench that can be dismantled and cleaned by the user without the need for factory recalibration.

Leaf Area Index (LAI) is the ratio of foliage area to ground area. The LAI-2200 computes LAI from measurements made above the canopy and below the canopy, which are used to determine canopy light interception at 5 angles. These data are fit to a well-established model of radiative transfer inside vegetative canopies to compute leaf area index, mean tilt angle, and canopy gap fraction.

The benefits of the LAI-2200 over other methods such as ceptometry and hemispherical photography are that it:

Makes few assumptions about canopy structure.
