Steve’s Solutions: Methane and Trees

We have been following the outstanding work of Dr. Pangala since early 2018 -at that time a postdoctoral fellow at The Open University in U.K.- and her colleagues on the elucidation of methane budget of Amazon floodplain trees. In 2014, they setup a 2-month
expedition in Amazonia during which they recorded in-situ the methane emissions from about 2400 trees in several floodplains. This thorough survey allowed to demonstrate that an approximate 20 tons of methane were released yearly through the Amazon trees -essentially those in the extensively flooded forests.

These recent findings on Methane emissions by trees pose new challenges to the environmental community.

Soil Flux Analysis

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as CO2, CH4 or N2O released from various soils in the atmosphere, or from plants or livestock manures play an important role in climate change. The ABB LGR-ICOS analyzers allow to perform real-time measurement of GHGs of biogenic origin released from different locations. Those measurements provide critical information to environmental scientists as they quantify GHG emissions and assess the impact of the nature of various soils on the environment.

ISFTA 2019

We are very excited to be going to Portland OR for ISTFA 2019. This is always a great show and we are looking forward to meeting with friends and making new ones. Please visit us at Booth #306.

We will be at there representing a number of products:

Axis Pro Micromanipulator

Micro Support Micromanipulators

Microscope/micromanipulator system to easily perform sample manipulations as small as 1 micron.  Probes available for a wide range of sample manipulations, including:

  • Electrical Probing
  • Isolating particles
  • Cutting
  • Milling off a surface
  • Micro tweezers
  • Vacuum for particle transfer

Arms also be added to FTIR or Raman Microscopes

Nanoro

The Nanoro M is a cutting edge light microscope which can break the optical diffraction limit using the Super-Resolution Microsphere Amplifying Lens (SMAL).

About ISFA 2019, Nov 10-14, Portland Convention Center

Plan today to attend ISTFA 2019! The 44rd International Symposium for Testing and Failure Analysis (ISTFA). This year’s theme is ‘ Failures Worth Analyzing’

Micro Support Micromanipulator at GGPF

We will be demonstrating the Microsupport Axis Pro micromanipulator at the Golden Gate Polymer Forum Two-Day Short Course: Polymers in Electronic Packaging on November 4-5, 2019

This two-day day short course, presented by recognized experts from The Madison Group, is based on their annual course “Plastic Part Failure: Analysis, Design and Prevention” given at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. Attendees will gain a better understanding of basic principles that affect the durability and failure of plastic parts. As these speakers like to say “if you don’t know how something broke, you can’t fix it,” highlighting the importance of a thorough understanding of how and why a product has failed. With emphasis on practical problem-solving techniques, the course will utilize case studies to comprehend key aspects of plastic failure and prevention. Gain a better understanding of why plastic components fail, and how to avoid future failures by applying the knowledge learned. The combination of excellent speakers, a convenient location in the Bay Area, an affordable price, and focus on practical applications makes this an exceptional opportunity.
