The Extech Hygro-Thermo-Anemometer-Light-Sound Meter is a rugged 5-in-1 environmental meter that measures humidity, temperature, air velocity, light, and sound. The characters on display can reverse direction depending on the meter mode. The built-in low friction vane wheel improves accuracy of air velocity, the precision thin-film capacitance humidity sensor for fast response, and the thermistor for amibient temperature measurements.
The type K input measures temperature up to 2372°F. The meter utilizes a precision photo diode and correction filter for cosine and color corrected light measurements. the sound level measurement meets IEC 61672 class 2 using A frequency weighting and fast response time. An optional tripod mount allow for continuous measurements.

As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis.
The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it.
“This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.”
From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture.
Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&;M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS.
“TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.Read More
Formed by a glacier, Jordan Pond is among Maine's clearest, most beautiful bodies of water. It's also a critical freshwater resource, and watchful eyes are protecting it.
EM spoke with Dr. Rachel Fowler, Friends of Acadia's aquatic scientist, about her work monitoring Jordan Pond. A postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Maine, she is a member of a partnership among the National Park Service, the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, and Friends of Acadia that began deploying the Jordan Pond buoy in 2013. Canon provided the initial support for the project.
Friends of Acadia is a nonprofit organization that supports different projects in the park.Read More
