The waterproof, battery-operated Thermo Orion A322 portable conductivity meter stands up to the most demanding field applications to deliver the most advanced performance of any portable meter. Four AA batteries, included with purchase of the A322, provide over 800 hours of continuous operation so the instrument is ready when it's needed, where it's needed. The meter displays reliable conductivity, TDS, salinity and resistivity and temperature readings on a large, backlit LCD screen and automatically locks in stable readings.

Orion Star A320 series portable meters provide the largest storage capacity available for time-stamped data points, which can be conveniently uploaded to a PC through the meter's USB and RS-232 ports. Automatic or 1 to 5 point manual calibration makes instrument setup simple, while icons provide quick updates on battery life, electrode status and calibration information. Five reference temperature options are available to provide accurate data under any conditions. The simple button layout and on-screen messages also assist with calibration and explain setup menu choices.

Choosing The Right Thermo Portable For Your Project

With so many options in Thermo Scientific’s Orion Star A line, it can be difficult to narrow down which meter will best fulfill a project’s needs. One easy way to rule out some meters is by considering application type. For projects that rely largely on collecting samples in the field, a portable meter is clearly the way to go. But there’s still a handful of meters to choose from. To simplify making the right choice, we spoke with Ricki Hartwell, the global product manager for Thermo Scientific’s Orion Laboratory and Field Instruments. She recently shared her tips on choosing the right Thermo benchtop. Let’s take a look at her recommendations for selecting the right portable meter.

Monitoring Water Pollution in Keweenaw Bay

As much as climate change and pollution impact current generations and present environmental conditions, the compounding damages will continue to wreak havoc against generations to come if no actions are taken. This idea is central for scientists who focus their research on monitoring, analyzing and responding to environmental data. Researchers like Dylan Friisvall, the water quality technician for the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) Natural Resources Department (NRD) , have dedicated their careers to monitoring pollution and water quality in order to protect resources for the future. “One of the best parts of my job is just being outdoors, it makes my day go by faster because I get to enjoy the fresh air, and help do my part in protecting the environment,” says Friisvall.

Balancing Forest Biodiversity and Land Use Benefits

A new study by Fangyuan Hua, Assistant Professor at Peking University’s Institute of Ecology, compiles data showing that restoring native forests results in better biodiversity, greater carbon storage and more soil conservation and water provisioning benefits. However, the data also indicates that tree plantations are better at providing wood. The benefits and downsides of each forest type lead to tradeoffs in land management practices. In their paper , Hua and colleagues explore the advantages and disadvantages of different forest types, hoping to point the way toward better forest restoration practices. They hope to encourage practices that balance environmental goals with wood production needs.
