The Extech Stopwatch/Clock with Backlit Display is the perfect instrument for viewing in low light areas or at night.
The Extech Backlit Stopwatch/Clock works well in dimly lit areas. The backlight is great and turns off after four seconds to preserve battery life. It features a 12 or 24 hour clock operation, calendar that displays day, month, & date, and a programmable alarm with an hourly chime. The stopwatch/chronograph mode has a 1/100 second resolution for 30 minutes and an accuracy of 3 seconds per day. The water resistant housing comes complete with an LR44 battery and 39" (1m) neckstrap.

Sometimes scientists have to make an extraordinary effort to study the questions that concern them. In fact, they may even need to design and build labs to their specifications. This was the case with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln's (UNL’s) Fish Conservation Behavior and Physiology Lab , which serves as a locus for research on water management best practices based on fish physiology—work conducted by up and coming scientists as well as more established researchers. Dr. Jamilynn Poletto spoke to EM about how the lab was built and the work that is happening there.

“My problem was that in the lab we get city water from Lincoln, and any water from any city in the country has chlorine and chloramine in it,” explains Dr.Read More
Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies , an independent environmental research organization in Millbrook, NY, is a leader in environmental monitoring – particularly long-term monitoring that spans decades.
Steve Hamilton is a freshwater ecologist at Cary Institute and professor at Kellogg Biological Station , a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), at Michigan State University. Hamilton explains, “Environmental monitoring is how ecologists keep a finger on the planet’s rapidly-shifting pulse. By tracking ecological indicators over long timescales, we can identify patterns and better understand how ecosystems are changing. This understanding will guide us as we work to adapt to and mitigate environmental degradation.Read More
In drought-stressed areas like California where every drop in the aquifer counts, seismic noise may be the key to monitoring water. Harvard University PhD student and principal investigator Tim Clements spoke to EM about this recent work, and how it might be a game changer for water watchers across the country.
“The inspiration for this research was the historic drought in California from 2011 to 2017,” explains Clements. “This was the driest period in recorded history in the state. We started this research after California had implemented the first mandatory water restrictions in state history in 2015.”
According to Clements, the team focused their study on the San Gabriel Valley in Los Angeles County for several reasons.Read More
