Abstract

Kalman adaptive filtering was applied for the first time, to our knowledge, to the real-time simultaneous determination of water isotopic ratios using laser absorption spectroscopy at 2.73 μ m . Measurements of the oxygen and hydrogen isotopologue ratios δ O 18 , δ O 17 , and δ H 2 in water showed a 1 σ precision of 0.72‰ for δ O 18 , 0.48‰ for δ O 17 , and 0.84‰ for δ H 2 , while sampling the output of the tuned Kalman filter at 1 s time intervals. Using a standard running average technique, averaging over 30   s is required to obtain the same level of precision.
