Abstract:

The purpose of this award was to partially fund the acquisition of a high-sensitivity, automated mass spectrometer system dedicated to the analysis of carbonate samples. The acquisition was jointly funded by this award, by an award from the National Sciences Foundation Division of Ocean Sciences and by supporting funds from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. We purchased a Finnigan MAT252 mass spectrometer with an automated carbonate device known as the Kiel device. The instrument was delivered in December 1992. It was installed in March 1993 and met factory specifications within three weeks. Routine operational use of the system began in March 1993.
