CWI paper is editor's choice

Posted 10 October 2013

Environmental Chemistry Letters cover.

A recent research paper documenting research at CWI has been highlighted as an editor’s choice article from among all articles published in the Environmental Chemistry Letters journal during the past 12 months.

The research was conducted by UNSW researchers from the CWI and the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre.

CWI team members Adam Hartland, Andy Baker, and Wendy Timms were contributing authors to the paper, entitled Measuring dissolved organic carbon δ13C in freshwaters using total organic carbon cavity ring-down spectroscopy (TOC-CRDS).

The paper documents a robust, simple and inexpensive method that can be used to monitor the transport of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) into fresh water sources by real-time measurement of the δ13C signature of DOC.

Equipment used for the work was funded by the Groundwater EIF.
