Research in the Trace Gas Biogeochemistry Laboratory
I have been working on a few projects “Net ecosystem fluxes of methyl halides from Rush Ranch, a salt marsh ecosystem in the San Joaquin Delta”, “Halide extractions from Oxford Tract” and I’m about to start another project that is running GS-MS with a different carrying gas, which could possibly improve gas chromatography results. With the first two projects I did a lot of halide extractions and they are done at this moment and ready for the last SAM measurements, that will give us the valuable data for both projects. For the Rush Ranch project we recently collected new samples in the field and going to finish measurements on GS-MS gas chromatography next week.
Message To SponsorThank you for providing me this opportunity, this experience is very valuable for me. It's a great opportunity to learn and help to accelerate important research that could possibly affect everybody as it studies fluxes of compounds that catalyze stratospheric ozone depletion.
