PI

Rack installtion for FIREX AQ. CANOE is on the right, third box from the top. Other instruments in this rack include ROZE (ozone, NASA GSFC), ISAF (formaldehyde, NASA GSFC), and NOAA-CSD LIFs for nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide.

The NASA GSFC Compact Airborne NO2 Experiment (CANOE) instrument measures nitrogen dioxide (NO2) on both pressurized and unpressurized (high-altitude) aircraft. Using non-resonant laser induced fluorescence (LIF), CANOE possesses the high sensitivity, fast time response, and dynamic range needed to observe NO2 throughout the troposphere and lower stratosphere.
