Provided by Dr. Stephen Wilson, this site illustrates the research using FTIR (Fourier Transform InfrarRed) technology by the Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group at the University of Wollongong. Chemists and students can learn how the group approaches issues of Greenhouse Gas Emissions by attempting to improve estimations of trace element exchange using high precision FTIR-based methods and micrometeorological techniques. Visitors can also discover how the Isotopes in the Atmosphere group is using high resolution FTIR spectroscopy -- which evades the limitations of mass spectrometry -- to distinguish diverse isotopic components of trace gases. With many more experiments discussed, researchers and students interested in the advances of FTIR spectroscopy will want to explore this site.
