Dionex ICS-3000 Instruments Used to Study Climate Change in Antarctic Ice Cores
Dionex Corporation is pleased to announce that Dionex ICS-3000 instruments are being used by scientists of the Australian Antarctic Division's glaciology department to study Antarctic ice cores impacted by the effects of climate change. The ice cores can be as long as 1200 meters with a climate history stretching back 90,000 years, and can take as long as six Antarctic summers to recover.
Dionex ion chromatography (IC) instruments have a long history of being used in climate change studies. In the past 10 years, the Byrd Polar Research Center, Ohio State University, has relied on Dionex IC instruments and columns to study ice cores from Tibet, Kilimanjaro, Peru, and Alaska. Teams from the Department of Public Health and Environmental Analytic Chemistry at the University of Florence, Italy, and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Bern, Switzerland have also implemented Dionex IC instruments and columns for climate change research.
