New(er) Beckman LS 6000IC (SysID# 231220) scintillation counter donated to SIO-CalCOFI by NOAA in early 2008. Repaired by SIO-CalCOFI and in service Oct 2008, replacing our broken/non-repairable Beckman LS 1801.
- First cruise counted on new counter: 0810NH
- New productivity import routine (DECODR, in-house data processing suite) written to ingest the new file format. Replicate 14C uptake calculations compared between old and new Beckman counters; agree within 95% CL.
