Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In-flight measurements of ambient methane, nitrous oxide and water have been made using frequency down-chirped radiation from a compact, pulsed, quantum-cascade laser spectrometer. In three flights from Oxford airport in October 2006 the variations of the concentration of these three trace gases could be measured and related to possible sources in the flight path.
