“Calculate MIMS dissolved gas concentrations without getting a headache.”
mimsy is a data analysis package that transforms raw MIMS (Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometer) signal data into dissolved gas concentration readings (mg, micromole) of N2, O2, and Ar based on gas solubility at temperature, pressure, and salinity. Supports dual-temperature standard calibration for dual-bath MIMS setups.
mimsy is designed to be simple and accessible for non-R users.

# Load data into R data <- read.csv(file = "data.csv", header = TRUE, stringsAsFactors = FALSE) # Run the mimsy function results <- mimsy(data, baromet.press = 977.2, units = "hPa") # Save the results mimsy.save(results, file = "results.xlsx") # To Excel file save(results, file = "results.RData") # To RData file # Done! :)
