The measurement capabilities are unique and sometimes overlapping for each of the division's research groups, just as the research areas of each group compliment one another.

CSD has a Centrifugal Particle Mass Analyzer (CPMA), a device for selecting aerosol particles by their mass-to-charge ratio. The CPMA is available throughout CSD to help advance our science. Use the NOAA ESRL CSD CPMA Calendar to reserve the instrument.
