Abstract: We report on a diode-laser-based spectrometer, operating at a wavelength of 2 mum, which enables for simultaneous measurements Of CO2 and H2O concentrations in gaseous mixtures with high precision and accuracy. We implemented the very simple approach of a direct measurement of absorption in a multiple reflection cell with a pathlength of 50 m. Gas concentration is simply retrieved from the integrated absorbance, without using calibration cells. The spectrometer is equipped with single-mode optical fibers in order to probe remote environments. The possible application in volcanic areas will be discussed. We also investigated the possibility to measure the isotopic ratio (CO2)-C-13/(CO2)-C-12, which is another relevant parameter for monitoring volcanic activity. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
