Anderson Group Instruments

To answer the scientific objectives requires development of a new calibration/validation strategy that considers in detail both the analytical issues that address accuracy and precision of in situ and remote instrumentation, broadly applicable to a wide variety of species, with sensitivities demonstrated to the scientific community. Measurements must be possible over a wide range of conditions and altitudes, and the instruments should show reductions in cost, weight, and servicing frequency, allowing repetitive and systematic measurement strategies.

We define next the core instruments presented in this proposal that are a component of the full instrument array required for both the AURA calibration/validation and for the testing of scientific hypotheses central to scientific progress in the field. While these instruments are described in detail in the text of the proposal, we present here a brief summary.
