Tracking Heat Islands with LabQuest 2

Forrest Mims III submitted an innovative use about studying heat islands in our Fall 2013 The Caliper newsletter. He has recently published an article for MAKE Magazine about tracking heat islands with LabQuest 2.

While temperature loggers work well, they require you to note times and locations during a transect so you can analyze the data. No notes are needed with a Vernier LabQuest 2, my favorite data logger for serious heat island studies.

After making a temperature transect across a city, you can send up to 1,000 temperature measurements to Vernier, which will return a Google map with a color-coded line that indicates the temperature along the route (violet being the coolest and red the warmest).

Potassium ISE Is Shipping!

Potassium Ion-Selective Electrode

The Potassium Ion-Selective Electrode can be used to measure the concentration of potassium (K+) ions in aqueous solutions. This electrode can be used for testing in the field and in circumstances where other
means of measuring potassium ions is cumbersome or prohibitively expensive.

PAR Sensor Is Shipping!

PAR Sensor

The PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) Sensor measures photosynthetic light levels in both air and water. It features a waterproof sensor head and can be used to measure Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD) from sunlight and electric light sources. It is sensitive to visible light in the spectral range that is used by plants in photosynthesis (400–700 nm).
