Ion Chromatography

The Ion Chromatography (IC) analyses (which meet or exceed WMO quality criteria) are carried out principally by three different methods in order to measure:

  • the chemical composition of rainfall (major organic and inorganic species)
  • the filters used in the passive gas samplers in order to determine the concentrations of SO2, NH3, NO2, HNO3 and O3
  • the soluble and organic aerosol collected on teflon filters

The laboratory is equipped with the following:

  • 3 DIONEX chromatographs (ICS 1000, DX100 et DX 500)
  • the Chroméléon DIONEX Aquisition programme
  • DIONEX automatic passes
