Investigation of the use of filter packs to measure the sulphur isotopic composition of volcanic sulphur dioxide and the sulphur and oxygen isotopic composition of volcanic sulphate aerosol

Abstract:

Filter packs have been used to collect sulphur and oxygen from air for isotope analysis from many areas of the world. Here we discuss their use to determine the sulphur isotope systematics of SO₂ and the sulphur and oxygen systematics of sulphate particles from volcanic vents. Our field data suggest that fractionation of sulphur isotopes occurs during the collection of SO₂ from concentrated volcanic gas plumes on alkali-impregnated filter papers. The collection of volcanogenic HCI on the same...
