The Extech 1000A Clamp Meter + IR Thermometer is a full size true RMS multimeter that features a built-in non-contact IR thermometer with laser pointer. Multimeter functions included AC/DC voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode, and continuity. The 1.7" jaw opening fits conductors up to 750MCM or two 500MCM. Unit functions include peak hold to capture inrush currents and transients, data hold, min/max, auto power off, and an autoranging function with manual range button.


The meter comes with an 8-piece professional test lead set. The kti includes two 42" PVC lead extensions with shrouded banana plugs at both ends, two modular 4" heavy duty test probe handles with 0.16" banana plug tip, two standard size alligator clips with insulated rubber boot, and two extra large, double-insulated, alligator clips with sharp teeth for piercing insulated wires. The jaw opens to 0.8".

The Birds and the Bees: Understanding the Diversity of Pollinators

Pollinators of all shapes and sizes are vital to ecosystems around the world. From the wide array of food people eat to the diversity of life around the planet, life would be very different without them. Pollinators are organisms that help carry pollen from one plant to another, and over 350,000 species can be found worldwide, according to The California Department of Fish and Wildlife . With the strong relationship between plants and pollinators, losing either would have detrimental impacts on ecosystems.  Over millions of years, both plants and pollinators have evolved alongside each other and formed unique adaptations that allow them to work together, expediting and enhancing the process of pollination.

Monitoring Volcanic Activity in Hawaii: Safeguarding Public Safety with the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory

The eight main Hawaiian Islands are made up of 15 volcanoes, six of which are active as of 2023 . Many locals live on or near an active volcano, making the monitoring and understanding of volcanic activity a core issue of public safety on the islands. Organizations like the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) have spent decades monitoring the islands’ volcanoes to protect the public, develop a deeper understanding of the islands’ volcanos and forecast eruptions whenever possible. Even those who live away from edifices like Mauna Loa often have connections to the people living near the volcano.

Crystal Clear Problems: Impacts of Water Transparency in Aquatic Ecosystems

From crystal clear alpine lakes to muddy rivers and boggy swamps, water transparency is an easily observable water quality parameter to anyone who takes a few moments to peer into the (sometimes) murky depths. Water transparency varies dramatically based on the location of bodies of water among different watershed environments, but it can also change quickly due to a variety of internal and external factors. At Miami University (OH), the Global Change Limnology Lab explores the many ways that water transparency impacts aquatic ecosystems. Operational for nearly 20 years, the lab trains undergraduate and graduate students and has conducted work from the midwest Great Lakes to Alaska, South America and New Zealand.  The Global Change Limnology Lab, headed by Dr.
