Furthermore, Picarro Surveyor is also the world's only solution capable of distinguishing natural gas leaks from other sources of methane, such as sewers and landfills by stable isotope analysis, thereby eliminating false positives in minutes while in the field and saving numerous hours of laboratory gas analysis.
But stable isotope analysis indicates the males were not local to Anglesey, but may have spent their early years in north west Scotland or Scandinavia.
The researchers say the starch granules and carbohydrate markers in the samples, plus evidence for plant compounds such as azulenes and coumarins, as well as possible evidence for nuts, grasses and even green vegetables, argue for a broader use of ingested plants than is often suggested by stable isotope analysis.
2002), except for those samples selected for compound specific analysis, which were soxlet extracted (see below; gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and compound specific stable isotope analysis (CSIA)).
A number of field studies are available to the interested reader that demonstrate the powerful application of stable isotope analysis to distinguish between multiple sources of groundwater contamination within a plume by analyzing isotopic compositions from samples taken in the vicinity of suspected source zones.
The application of stable isotope analysis in animal ecology, however elegant and technologically simple, is nevertheless fraught with several heuristic difficulties, primarily stemming from uncertain variation in isotopic discrimination based on many physiological processes.
