Continuous Flow Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry of Carbon Dioxide Trapped as Strontium Carbonate

  title={Continuous Flow Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry of Carbon Dioxide Trapped as Strontium Carbonate},
  author={D. T. Harris and Lynn K. Porter and Eldor A. Paul},
The isotopic signal provided by differential discrimination against atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) by C3 and C4 plant photosynthetic pathways is being widely used to study the processes of carbon (C) fixation, soil organic matter formation, and mineralization in nature. These studies have been facilitated by the availability of automated C and nitrogen (N) combustion analyzers (ANCA) combined with continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometers (CFIRMS). Analysis of CO2 in these instruments… CONTINUE READING
