The Aurora 3000 three wavelength nephelometer is the instrument of choice for climate change researchers, helping them to derive the aerosol asymetry parameter, Angstrom coeeficient and the single scattering albedo of aerosols. Using it's innovative LED light source, the Aurora 3000 simultaneously measures at 525nm (green), 450nm (blue) and 635nm (red) to enable wide and in-depth analysis of the interaction between light and aerosols. The Ecotech Aurora 3000 includes backscatter measurement that allows both standard integrating measurements of 9-170° and also the back scatter 90-170°.
