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.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission ’s Inland Fisheries Division has been working to restore brook trout in the state. Coldwater research coordinator Jacob Rash, who works with the brook trout team technicians on this project, spoke to EM about the work.
“In North Carolina, brook trout are our only native trout species,” explains Mr. Rash. “With that come biological and ecological considerations as well as cultural importance. A lot of folks here grew up fishing for brook trout with their relatives, so it's an important species that we work to try to conserve. We've done quite a bit of work to figure out where those brook trout populations are and what they are, in terms of genetics.Read More
Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates.
Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing.
EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.Read More
News stories about dogs getting sick from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in lakes have caused worry among members of the public this summer more than once. But Regional Science Consortium (RSC) Executive Director Dr. Jeanette Schnars and a dedicated team are bringing awareness about HABs to the public with the Mobile HAB Lab.
“We just launched the HAB Citizen Scientists program this year,” explains Dr. Schnars. “It helps us work with people, especially people who spend time at marinas frequently, that are out there all season long.”
The season for boaters at Presque Isle, where RSC is located, starts in mid-May and usually continues through the beginning or middle of October.Read More
