To implement a regular service for providing a new Standard Reference Material (SRM) for 13CO2 and 18O-CO2 in air. The SRM, consisting of two precisely calibrated air samples, is intended to unify local links to the isotopic VDBP scale and make results reported from the participating laboratories compatible at unprecedented precision.
Isotopic Standard Reference Material will be accessible to all atmospheric research laboratories involved in high-precision CO2 isotope measurements. Interlaboratory comparison programs involving the relevant atmospheric laboratories in Europe and overseas (like the one proposed in NA3) will help to detect and document the improvments made in 13C as well as 18O of CO2 in air.
