77° North – A week at the Polish Polar Station

Research projects are undertaken everywhere; from the university laboratory to some of the coldest places on earth.

Research into the environment takes place all over the globe. Having the ability to perform immediate analysis in remote locations can make or break a research project.

Robust IC systems have allowed researchers to continue their analysis in some spectacular locations, from the Southern Ocean to the edge of the Arctic Circle and anywhere in between. Follow a trip to one of these locations here.

At the Polish Polar Station, surface and precipitation waters are analyzed by ion chromatography

The Polish Polar Station lies at the Hornsund fjord on Spitzbergen, the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Among other things, investigations into the long-distance transport of air pollutants into the Arctic are conducted here. To accomplish this, the researchers at the Polar Station link ion chromatography measurements in precipitates to meteorological data. IC product manager Marcin Wiklak from Poland reports on his visit to Spitzbergen.
