The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) is the
leading international non-governmental organization for the promotion and
coordination of international oceanographic activities, with the aim to
solve conceptual and methodological problems that hinder marine research.
The SCOR Working Group #143, formed in November 2013, and focuses on
improving measurements of the nitrous oxide and methane in seawater. One
activity conducted was the synthesis of gas standards which were distributed
to the Full Members of the Working Group and a few Associate Members as
listed below. This Technical Report provides details on the production of
the nitrous oxide and methane standards and includes the absolute
concentrations for each gas cylinder and best practice recommendations for
gas regulator usage. Anyone seeking to cross-compare their own standards
with these standards should contact one of the recipients of the standards.
