Description


PICARRO G2201-i DEMOSTRATION

Picarro G2201-i analyzer provided by UNIVERSITY of FLORENCE  was used to analyse interstitial soil gas and fumarolic gases collected by the students during the field-trips at Bottoniera and the summit craters of ETNA.

Students used the analysers to :

-Collect gas samples from natural emissions

-Purify samples from interfering species such as H2O and H2S trough specific traps ( e.g. drierite and copper metal shavings)

-Perform high-quality analysys of the chemical and isotopic composition of volcanic gases through Picarro G2201-i analyzer
