SOMMA repairs

The SOMMA system was developed for the marine carbon research programs (JGOFS, WOCE) in the late eighties of last century as a high precision instrument for dissolved inorganic carbon measurement by coulometry. These instruments have been built by the University of Rhode Island, USA, until about twenty years ago.
