Isaac Vimont is a post-doctoral researcher funded by the National Research Council (NRC) to work at NOAA GMD in the carbon cycle group. Isaac studies carbon monoxide (CO) stable isotopes, and is currently developing and implementing a system to analyze CO isotopes in the NOAA GMD Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network. These measurements will aid in the understanding of the carbon monoxide budget around the globe.
Isaac is also involved with urban pollution and greenhouse gas measurements. He completed his thesis using measurements taken at the Indianapolis FLUX experiment (INFLUX) and has expanded to begin work on the North East Corridor, spanning the breadth of Washtington D.C. to Boston, MA. Currently, Isaac is collaborating with partners at NOAA, NIST, and Earth Networks to begin measurements at sites in the Washington DC, Baltimore area.
Isaac is also assisting with the development of a new sampling system called the Active AirCore, which will use existing NOAA AirCore technology mounted to a Drone to sample gas plumes by pumping air into a long tube which can be analyzed later.
Isaac has been to both Greenland and Antarctica for field campaigns under his former PhD advisor, Vasilii Petrenko providing assistance in ice core drilling research
Outside of work, Isaac is an avid welder, and loves camping, mountain biking, and all things mechanical.
