The measurement of stable carbon isotope ratios of atmospheric carbon dioxide, CO2 are useful for partitioning surface-atmospheric fluxes into terrestrial and oceanic components. COO also has potential for segregating photosynthetic and respiratory fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. Here we describe in detail the techniques for making these measurements. The primary challenge for all of the techniques used to measure isotopes of atmospheric CO2 is to achieve acceptable accuracy and precision and… CONTINUE READING
