The Extech Portable Indoor Air Quality CO2 Meter measures carbon dioxide, temperature, humidity, dew point, and wet bulb.
The Extech Portable Indoor Air Quality CO2 Meter checks for carbon dioxide concentrations and calculates statistical 8 hour and 15 minute time weighted averages. The maintenance free NDIR sensor has measurement ranges from 0 to 5,000ppm for CO2, 14 to 140°F for temperature, and 0.0 to 99.9% for humidity.Programable audible alarms will alert users if readings detect a high concentration of CO2.
The built-in RS-232 interface captures readings to transfer to a PC. The data acquisition software and included cable record and document CO2, humidity, and temperature data. Applications include checking air quality in schools, office buildings, greenhouses, hospitals, and anywhere that high carbon levels of carbon dioxide are generated.

Determining exchange rates of carbon dioxide between the earth’s forests and the atmosphere is turbulent business. Wind above forest canopies swirls as vortexes of air enter and exit stands of trees. Across the globe, towers stand among the landscape, with sensors monitoring these eddies for carbon dioxide, water vapor and other gasses. These so-called “flux towers” collect data on carbon dioxide exchange rates between the earth and atmosphere. Information gathered plays into the debate on the measurable effects of climate change. Carbon dioxide flows between the earth, atmosphere and ocean in an attempt to reach equilibrium. As automobiles and energy production facilities burn fossil fuels, more carbon dioxide joins to the mix.Read More
It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.Read More
As a research project underway at the University of California (UC) - Santa Barbara shows, sometimes you’ve got to leave the Earth to adequately study some of its most basic processes. Researchers at the university are partnering with the International Space Station to complete an investigation of fluid dynamics. The lab in microgravity is providing them with an important dataset for gauging the impacts of the force on our planet’s fluid movement. The experiments in space , to be run by astronauts, are fairly straightforward. Cameras will be employed to monitor different sediment particles as they interact with one another in fluid in near-zero gravity. Light shone at and through the setups will help researchers track the motion and observe the density of the particles.Read More
