This Extech Pinless Psychrometer quickly indicates the moisture content of multiple wood types and other building materials with pinless technology without damagin the surface. The remote pin probe allows for contact moisture readings.The easy-to-read large dual display with automatic backlight and fast analog bargraph simultaneously displays moisture value of wood or materials being tested, as well as air temperature, IR temperature, and humidity. High/low moisture or humidity alarms are user programmable.
The meter wirelessly transmits moisture and humidity data to a FLIR high-definitioninfrared camera to incorporate meter readings with thermal images. The IR circuit is designed to measure non-contact surface temperature, and the built-in humidity/temperature probe measures relative humidity, air temperature, grains per pound, dew point, vapor pressure, and condensation point. The meter manually stores/recalls up to 20 labeled readings. Additional meter functions include automatic calculation of differential temperature to determine condensation point, min/max function, data hold, and automatic power off.

Around the world, the occasional phenomenon known as sneaker waves poses a threat to beachgoers. Unusually large sneaker waves in 2016 and 2018 prompted Oregon State University (OSU) researchers to investigate these mysterious events. The research revealed the presence of runup signals that can provide earlier warnings to officials, reducing risk from these dangerous events.
Dr. Tuba Ozkan-Haller of OSU spoke to EM about the research .
“Sneaker waves occur in the Pacific Northwest, but they're also a worldwide phenomenon,” explains Dr. Ozkan-Haller. “Certain kinds of coastlines appear to be more well-suited to the occurrence of these waves. There are some characteristics that we know play into it, but there's still a lot of unknowns too.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
