The Extech Pitot Tube Anemometer + Differential Manometer reaches in tight locations where a vane anemometer can't fit to measure air velocity/airflow.
The Extech Pitot Tube Anemometer + Differential Manometer measures air velocity and airflow in difficult-to-reach or tight locations. The meter simultaneously displays pressure, air velocity, or air flow plus temperature on a large LCD display with backlighting. It has 5 selectable units of pressure measurements and a ±0.7252psi range. It stores and recalls up to 99 readings in each mode to then be transferred to a PC via the UBS port to analize data points using the included software. Additional meter functions include max/min/avg recording, relative time stamp, data hold, and auto power off.

How does this meter measure air flow and pressure?
This anemometer uses a unique pitot tube method to measure air velocity and air flow, and a manometer hose to measure pressure in small, tight areas. To measure air velocity or air flow, the pitot tube is connected to the meter by the two pressure manometer hoses. Then the tube is held in the flow of air with the mouth of the tube facing the oncoming air. To measure pressure, connect only one hose to the input(+) port on the meter, and hold the open end of the tube toward the air flow.
A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
