|MA1500||True RMS AC/DC clamp meter|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
|MA1500-NIST||True RMS AC/DC clamp meter, NIST traceable|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
With a built-in non-contact voltage detector, the Extech 1500 can be used to check for the presence of live wires before testing. The multimeter reads AC current, DC current, AC/DC voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode, duty cycle, and continuity. The 2.0" (52 mm) jaw size allows conductors up to 500MCM.
Features include double molded housing to ensure durability for years to come and auto power off for longer battery use. An inrush function captures transients during motor start-ups.

It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution.
Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up.
“This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.Read More
In 2012, for maybe the first time, Lake Superior got scummy.
Visitors to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore reported algae washing up on shore around the park.
It was a marked shift for the park, made up of a portion of the Lake Superior lakeshore and nearby islands. The water surrounding the park is cold, clear and typically low in nutrients: a combination unlikely to result in algal blooms.
But, in 2012 and again in 2018 after violent storms, major algal blooms—ones observed over multiple days—washed ashore and clogged the beaches with unsightly, scummy algae.
Not the usual suspects
The algal blooms of Lake Superior are not the algal blooms of warmer, more nutrient-rich lakes like Lake Erie.Read More
*This is part two of a series on changing ancient lakes. See part one, Lake Baikal, here .
Ancient lakes are facing a suite of rapid, unprecedented anthropogenic changes. While ancient lakes are spread around the world and vary widely from lake to lake, their incredible age, which can reach into the tens of millions of years, makes them unique resources to science.
They host incredible biodiversity and long sediment records. They are vital sources of food and water for millions of people. In a changing world, ancient lakes’ value as scientific and natural resources and the incredibly diverse life they contain is under threat.Read More
