The Arctic has been losing sea ice over the past several decades as Earth warms.
However, each year, as the sea ice starts to melt in the spring following its maximum wintertime extent, scientists still struggle to estimate exactly how much ice they expect will disappear through the melt season.
Now, a new NASA forecasting model based on satellite measurements is allowing researchers to make better estimates. Continue reading
Omega’s NEW Digital Thermocouple Thermometers
Online — OMEGA announces the next generation of Precision Digital Thermometers, the HH911T/HH912T Series.
They are user configurable for Type K, J, T or E thermocouple probes to provide a wide range of temperature measurements from -250 to 1372 °C (-418 to 2502 °F).
The HH911T (single input) and the HH912T (dual channel inputs with T1-T2 readings) provide dependable and uninterrupted portable measurement capability without expensive batteries, AC adaptors, or chargers. Continue reading

Agriculture Embracing the IoT
An online article by . M. Andrade, Ph.D. – Department of Electronics, Computing and Mathematics, College of Engineering and Technology – University of Derby (UK)
“Earth’s population is forecasted to reach over 9.6 billion people by 2050  which, in turn, implies a 70% increase in food demand .
“This increase in food production will have an important impact on the amount of water required for irrigation and how efficiently it is used since currently 69% of the world’s fresh water is consumed in agriculture whilst the industrial sector accounts for 19% and the households and municipalities account for 12% of water withdrawals  (see Figure 1 for details on water withdrawals in different world regions).
