Plotted datasets are provided by the Bowman Lab. Data presented here are provisional and no warranty is provided.

Membrane Inlet Mass Spec Diagnostic Plots

Dissolved oxygen, nitrogen, and argon are measured each minute on a Hiden HPR-40 membrane inlet mass spectrometer (MIMS). The ratio of oxygen to argon provides a measure of the amount of photosynthesis taking place relative to respiration.
