(Continued from page 5) Spectronus TM has been utilised in a number of other pioneering maritime and ship-based environmental studies, including: • providing data on CO 2 levels during a 2014 circumnavigation of Australia; • another aerosol study of the Daintree River region of Queensland in 2016, and • a short campaign in 2018 by the Royal Australian Navy to study aerosol formation around Garden Island, in Western Australia to assist with visibility for submarines. Pic above: Prof. David Griffith installing the Spectronus TM aboard the Aurora Australis. Pic top: Spectronus TM is the only gas analyser on the market with the ability to make real-time high precision measurements of multiple gases and isotypes simultaneously, within the single instrument. Its precision values for gas measurement exceed the standards of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO). Its unique ability to measure four gases and two isotopes at once ensures: • One set of calibrations • Low cost of ownership • Only one operator required • Only one piece of software for all measurements • Ease of operation. As a multi-species gas analyser, Spectronus TM measures: • Nitrous oxide (N 2 O) • Methane (CH 4 ) • Carbon monoxide (CO) • Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) • Delta Carbon 13 isotope (δ 13 C) • Delta Oxygen 18 isotope (δ 18 O). “Spectronus’ TM latest expedition is another example of the close relationship that ECOTECH shares with the academic and research sector,” commented Felicity Sharp, Head of ECOTECH Europe. “We recognise the importance of participating in ongoing research and welcome the opportunity to support Prof. Griffith and his team at the University of Wollongong,” she added. ECOTECH’s monitoring suite providing global solutions This is not the first time that ECOTECH instruments have been used during maritime expeditions to study atmospheric and environmental conditions. In 2017, ECOTECH was proud to partner with some of the world’s most respected environmental research institutions to study air quality and climate change on the 40-day AQABA expedition around the Arabian Peninsula. ECOTECH supplied the expedition with its Aurora ® 3000 Multi Wavelength Integrating Nephelometer, the Serinus ® 60 Direct Nitrogen Dioxide Analyser and its next generation Congrego ® Data Logger. ECOTECH monitoring equipment collected data on the chemical composition of the atmosphere and supported ongoing gas-aerosol interaction research and studies on the atmospheric chemistry of dust, sea salt and other natural emissions’ interactions with air pollution.

01dB Reinforcing Their presence in Asian Airport Business ACOEM group is delighted to announce Airports of Thailand (AoT) renewed their trust in 01dB airport solutions. After Phuket airport in 2014, ACOEM was chosen to supply a full airport environment management system to Bangkok and Chiang Mai airports simultaneously. A total of 27 01dB CUBE smart noise monitoring stations and two 01dB Aerovision licences will be deployed at AoT Airports. These systems will help AoT to prepare the future extensions of both airports, with new terminals and new runways. Those extensions are key part of the Smart Cities agenda the Thai government put in place. Aerovision and CUBE features and performance, as well as the excellent customer experience provided to AoT by ACOEM Asia and 01dB’s distributor in Thailand, AM Acoustic, were instrumental in this success.
