Accelerator mass spectrometers


Chemical parameters were studied in framework of international and national Russian programs during the surveys of the research vessel of Shirshov Institute of Oceanology RAS and other vessels. The chemical measurements were performed on the base of the Laboratory of Marine Chemistry (SB SIO RAS, Gelendzhik). This Laboratory has an Accreditation certificate N POCC RU.0001.512500 for the technical competence in the Analytical Laboratories Accreditation System, GOST R ISO/IEC 17025 (valid till 04.03.2009). In 2006 the Laboratory participated in the intercalibration programme organized by BSERP: IAEA Laboratory of Marine Environment (Monaco). Besides this laboratory the Laboratories of SIO RAS, Moscow are involved in the measurements (Laboratory of geochemistry, Laboratory of biohydrochemistry, Laboratory of oil-and-gas content and some others). The data represents the results of measurements (i) at stations with sampling at certain depths levels from the surface down to bottom, (ii) in the upper layer during the surveys of fine structure spatial distribution in the coastal waters and (iii) in the focal points during monitoring programmes.
