Abstract:

Joint analyses of air samples similar to the operational type of samples obtained on Concorde flights were accomplished at A.E.R.E. Harwell in July 1978 between the Oregon Graduate Center and the Division of Environmental and Medical Sciences, Harwell. The studies were preliminary to directly comparing the data previously obtained by the contractor on the same species during an extensive series of high altitude flights made in 1975-1977. The interlaboratory calibrations and comparisons were successful. A second round of sample exchanges are in progress. Separately the joint studies measured for the first time the concentration of CF4 in the ambient atmosphere as well as the related trace gases COS and CS2 in several samples of volcanic emissions. The report includes a discussion of the Concorde program as to air sampling capabilities, operation, sampling schedule and the uniqueness of related opportunities of the Concorde Air Sampling Program.
