The Extech Dual Laser InfraRed Thermometer indicates ideal measuring distance when two laser points converge to a 1" target spot.
The Extech Dual Laser InfraRed Thermometer features a fast 100mS response with highest accuracy at a point where the dual lasers converge. The fast response is ideal for quick checks of multiple spots in a process or for catching spikes in temperature. The high 50:1 distance to target ratio measures smaller surface areas at greater distances.
A type K thermocouple probe input ranges from -58 to 2498°F (.50 to 1370°C). The white backlit multifunction LCD displays a bargraph for analysis of data points. The adjustable high/low set points with audible alarm alerts users when the temperature exceeds the programmed set points. Also included is a tripod mount for continous readings, and software to connect to a PC via USB port.

Rivers are a vital cooling source for power plants, but high-temperature water returned to rivers from the plants may detrimentally heat rivers and change aquatic ecosystems, according to a recent study.
Scientists from the University of New Hampshire and the City College of New York gathered federal data on power plants and river systems and linked up river flow and heat transfer models to figure out just how hot rivers get in the northeastern U.S.
They found that about one third of heat generated in thermoelectric power plants in the Northeast is drained into rivers via used cooling water. Just more than a third of the total heat generated at plants in the Northeast is converted directly into electricity for consumer use.Read More
Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes.
While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.Read More
Biological field stations make it possible for researchers all over the country to conduct environmental research. While some field stations have artist residencies, art is typically not the main focus of the biological station. Not so at Bakersville, North Carolina’s new AS IF Center (Art + Science In The Field) , which just opened its doors in March 2018. At AS IF, researchers and artists are deliberately invited to commingle, collaborate and create new things together. Far from being on the periphery or existing as an afterthought, artists are considered to be on parity with researchers at AS IF, the one energized by the other’s perspective.Read More
