Experiment on Water Vapor to Begin on Mauna Loa

Scientists will begin collecting the first near-real-time measurements of the isotopes in water vapour on Hawaii’s Mauna Loa this week, trialling what could prove to be a new way to study climate and weather systems.

The month-long experiment will deploy a trio of laser-based instruments to measure the isotopic composition of water vapor at least once every few minutes…

…He says that Mauna Loa was the obvious place to conduct the experiment because of its sheer elevation and its location in the subtropics, which is influenced by both tropical and northerly atmospheric currents…
