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
For the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like.
“Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.Read More
Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.Read More
