The Extech Desktop Indoor Air Quality CO2 Monitor checks for carbond dioxide concentrations through the maintenance free NDIR CO2 sensor. Indoor air quality is displayed in ppm with good (0 to 800ppm), normal (800 to 1200ppm), and poor (>1200ppm) indications. A programmable visible and audible CO2 warning alarm will alert users if extreme readings are detected. Measurement ranges are 0 to 9,999ppm for CO2, 14 to 140°F for temperature, and 0.1 to 99.9% for relative humidity.
Applications include air quality monitoring in schools, office buildings, greenhouses, factories, hotels, hospitals, transportation lines, and anywhere that high levels of carbon dioxide are generated.

Determining exchange rates of carbon dioxide between the earth’s forests and the atmosphere is turbulent business.
Wind above forest canopies swirls as vortexes of air enter and exit stands of trees. Across the globe, towers stand among the landscape, with sensors monitoring these eddies for carbon dioxide, water vapor and other gasses. These so-called “flux towers” collect data on carbon dioxide exchange rates between the earth and atmosphere.
Information gathered plays into the debate on the measurable effects of climate change.
Carbon dioxide flows between the earth, atmosphere and ocean in an attempt to reach equilibrium. As automobiles and energy production facilities burn fossil fuels, more carbon dioxide joins to the mix.Read More
Utah’s Canyonlands Research Center: A Great Study Location for Climate Effects on Ecosystem Processes, Community Dynamics and More
Canyonlands Research Center (CRC) is situated at The Nature Conservancy’s Dugout Ranch , over 5,200 private acres of research study area. One of CRC’s primary roles is to facilitate research and monitoring work of university and federal researchers. CRC is located adjacent to Canyonlands National Park , which extends over more than 337,000 acres of public land. CRC also partners with many organizations, including the Bureau of Land Management, USFS, NPS, USGS, Utah State University, and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to identify the most pressing research needs in this region.Read More
Recent research from a University of Guelph (U of G) team reveals that warmer temperatures caused by climate change are forcing species to alter their behavior, causing food webs in Ontario lakes to transform. As temperatures warm, larger species hunt new prey in deeper waters, changing the ways nutrients and energy flow in lakes and triggering a “rewiring” of food webs.
Dr. Timothy Bartley , study lead author and a post-doctoral researcher in the U of G's Department of Integrative Biology , spoke to EM about the work .
“I got started on this when I first began graduate school and joined an ongoing project, which was a collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry ,” explains Dr. Bartley.Read More
