Project Location: 
Jefferson County Airport (Rocky Mountain Airport), Colorado
Project Description: 

The Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (LAS) project focused on testing the usefulness of tunable laser absorption spectroscopy for the measurement of atmospheric trace gases. Dr. William Mankin flew a tunable infrared diode laser and a small white absorption cell on the Sabreliner, Model 60 to measure carbon monoxide (CO) fluxes using the meteorological correlation method.
