Chemical analyses

Chemical analysisof INDAAF samples (rain, gases, aerosols) are performed at the chemistry service of the Laboratoire d’Aérologie (LAERO) in Toulouse (France). The service belongs to the LEETCHIE (Les Echanges Et Transformations d’espèces CHImiques et d’Energie) research team of the LAERO. The LAERO’s chemistry service analyses more than 7000 samples every year mainly in relation with the INDAAF programme but also for the Service National d’Observation (SNO) CLimate relevant Aerosol Properties from near surface observations (CLAP) Pic du Midi site (France) and other collaborative projects.

The service is also dedicated to the preparation of the INDAAF samples (passive gas samplers, aerosol filters pre-treatment of the LAERO and weighing) and performes pH and conductivity measurements on rainwater.
