Profiler in action!
The inlet of the CRDS automatically moves up and down throughout the night to sample air at two different levels. So far, we have seen lower concentrations of N2O5 at the lower level. This suggests N2O5 is being deposited to the snowpack. This data, coupled with vertical wind speeds, can be used to calculate a flux, or deposition rate, to the snowpack.
