[AAS04-05] Development of a large volume sampling system for measuring stable isotope analysis of carbonyl sulfide and field observation
Keywords:Carbonyl sulfide, Sulfur isotope, atmospheric trace components
Isotope analysis is a useful tool to trace sources and transformations of trace gases. Very recently, Angert et al. (2019 Sci. Rep.) reported d34S value at Israel and Canary Island for tropospheric OCS using a gas chromatograph (GC)/multi collector-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS). For the measurement of sulfur isotope ratios of OCS in our laboratory, an online method measuring on a GC/isotope ratio (IR)-MS using S+ fragmentation ions had been developed (Hattori et al., 2015). This method supports simple analysis of sulfur isotopic compositions of OCS over 8 nmol. However, application this method for atmospheric samples has yet to be done by this GC/IR-MS method, because of the large sample amounts that are necessary (i.e. 500 L of 500 pmol mol−1 OCS). Therefore, we developed a large volume air sampling system to apply S+ IR-MS method for atmospheric samples and we observed d34S value in Suzukakedai campus at Yokohama (Kamezaki et al., 2019 Atmos. Meas. Tech.).
We will discuss the difference between the result of Angert et al. (2019) and our observation. Additionally, we also report the result in field campaign using our developed method.
