Tracing Nitrate, Nitrite, and Ammonium in Groundwater

The Biogeochemistry Group of the Chair of Hydrogeology has successfully applied for a Picarro G5131-i isotopic and gas concentration analyzer that enables simultaneous measurements of site specific and bulk δ15N and δ18O in N2O. 

The new instrument is financed by DFG and will allow working on nitrogen contamination and process understanding in aquatic habitats.
