Learn how the SBA-5 CO2 Gas Analyzer is relied upon as a key component for researchers monitoring and understand degassing processes at active volcano sites by some of the most renowned researchers in the area of volcanology.
SBA-5 CO2 Gas Analyzer.
The webinar's focus will be on the SBA-5’s role in Dr. de Moor’s monitoring system on Costa Rican volcanoes, the SBA-5 as a key component of the new CO2-CH4 multi-gas system that Ms. Salas is building, and the trusted reliability Dr. Stix has experienced utilizing the SBA-5 on drones. 
About Dr. Stix

John Stix is a professor of volcanology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He holds the William Dawson Chair in Geology. He has worked on active volcanic systems since 1989, with a focus on volcanic gases, supervolcanoes, and subsurface magma plumbing systems. He is the past Editor-in-Chief of the Bulletin of Volcanology, the premier journal in its field. He and his group are continually searching for novel and exciting ways to study active volcanoes and their impacts.
About Dr. de Moor

Dr. Maarten de Moor is a volcanologist focusing on using gas geochemistry to understand volcanic processes and evaluate volcanic activity. He is based at the Observatory of Volcanology and Seismology in Costa Rica at the National University and uses in-situ instrumentation at active volcanoes to show that significant short-term variations in key gas ratios (CO2/SO2, H2S/SO2) accompany, and in some cases precede, eruptive activity. Real-time gas data thus provide insights into eruptive processes and show great potential for forecasting dangerous volcanic eruptions.
About Jessica Salas

Jessica is chemist and Master’s candidate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at McGill University. Prior to joining McGill, she was a research assistant at the Costa Rican volcano observatory where she became interested in geochemical research, monitoring volcanic activity, and science communication. Currently, she works with Dr. Stix and Dr. de Moor to design a new version of a Multi-GAS, an instrument capable of real-time field measurements of volcanic gas concentration.
