The Extech pH/ORP/Temperature Datalogger records data on an SD card for easy transfer to a PC.
The Extech pH Meter has a 3 point calibration to ensure the best linearity and accuracy of readings. The dual display shows pH or mV and temperature with automatic or manual temperature compensation. The datalogger records readings with real date and time stamp and stores up to 99 manually and 20M readings via the 2G SD card. User programmable sampling rates are from 1 second to8hrs:59min:59sec. The built-in PC interface allows for easy data transfer to a PC for further analysis. Additional meter functions include min/max, data hold, automatic power off, and disable. Typical applications include measuring pH of processed liquid samples.

With oceans becoming more acidic worldwide, scientists are getting creative in designing experiments to study them. For example, one group at the University of Washington is using giant plastic bags to study ocean acidification.
Each bag holds about 3,000 liters of seawater and sits in a cylinder-like cage for stability. The group at UW, made up of professors and students, is controlling carbon dioxide levels in the bags over a nearly three-week period, during which they are looking at the effects of increased acidity on organisms living near the San Juan Islands.
“These mesocosms are a way to do a traditional experiment you might do in a lab or classroom,” said Jim Murray, professor of oceanography at the University of Washington.Read More
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists detected signs of ocean acidification in the waters that hold the vulnerable and valuable fisheries of the North Pacific off the coast of Alaska, but they only had a snapshot of the action.
“We know that in this place were important commercial and subsistence fisheries that could be at risk from ocean acidification,” said Jeremy Mathis, a NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory researcher and professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
To understand how ocean acidification affects the North Pacific, NOAA scientists created a mooring network that collects constant in situ data on parameters contributing to acidification. They hope it will reveal seasonal trends and patterns left out by their snapshots.Read More
Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies , an independent environmental research organization in Millbrook, NY, is a leader in environmental monitoring – particularly long-term monitoring that spans decades.
Steve Hamilton is a freshwater ecologist at Cary Institute and professor at Kellogg Biological Station , a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), at Michigan State University. Hamilton explains, “Environmental monitoring is how ecologists keep a finger on the planet’s rapidly-shifting pulse. By tracking ecological indicators over long timescales, we can identify patterns and better understand how ecosystems are changing. This understanding will guide us as we work to adapt to and mitigate environmental degradation.Read More
