With Great Appreciation to the following companies and individuals for their generosity and kind support!


Claude Labine, President and CEO, Campbell Canada

Claude, helping with the installation of our new Campbell Scientific met station at Colour Lake, Expedition Fiord.


Julbo provided me with their Arctic sunglasses which are great protection for the eyes in bright, UV intense locations such as bright snow and on glaciers.


Dr. Sylvia A. Earle, Deep Ocean Exploration and Research, for her gracious support of our efforts to explore the lakes and oceans of Antarctica.

OMS  has helped enormously by providing needed diving/safety equipment.  The gear is solid and reliable which is an absolute requirement for diving in remote settings beneath thick ice.
Hardigg Storm Case
Hardigg Industries provided my research projects with several cases to help me transport sensitive equipment to and from my study sites. My cases just arrived and I have to admit my first impression is that these are solid, high quality cases and they will be up to the task of withstanding the abuse I will probably put them trough. 

From Hardigg Storm Case:
Storm Cases are the most solid protective cases in the industry. More than just a protective shell, they’re integrated protection systems. Manufactured with our own HPX® high performance resin, easy Press & Pull latches and durable soft-grip handles, they’re the most comfortable, toughest transport cases available. Our multilayer foam option allows you to easily customize the foam to your exact needs. If you’ve got sensitive, expensive or vital equipment to move, you need the power of a Storm behind you. We’ll even guarantee it for life. That’s how sure we are that our Storm Cases will never fail. Storm Cases are more than just watertight, padlockable and made in the USA, they’re also Unconditionally Guaranteed for Life. Ideal For Use In: Electronics, Video Broadcast, Aerospace, Chemical/Petroleum, Marine, Scuba, Law Enforcement, Fire & Emergency Services, Military/Government, Sports & Recreation, Public Safety and Photography. Any place you need superior protection.

There are many reasons why LI-COR light measurement instruments are utilized worldwide. They have been designed and field proven to meet research demands in agriculture, oceanography and limnology, solar energy, industry, and the biological sciences. LI-COR radiation sensors have been an industry standard for more than 30 years, with more than 100,000 light sensors sold. Experience, attention to detail, and an advanced knowledge of optical science are what separate LI-COR sensors from other alternatives.
LI-COR offers a broad range of sensors to fit your particular applications for light measurement in the field or lab. LI-COR Quantum Sensors measure photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) in the 400 to 700 nm waveband and are available in terrestrial configurations (LI-190 Quantum Sensor, LI-191 Line Quantum Sensor) and underwater configurations (LI-192 Underwater Quantum Sensor, LI-193 Spherical Quantum Sensor). The LI-200 Pyranometer measures solar radiation received from a whole hemisphere – suitable for measuring global sun plus sky radiation. The LI-210 Photometric Sensor measures radiation as the human eye sees it, in units of lux (1 footcandle = 10.674 lux). Instantaneous, averaged, or integrated measurements are provided when sensors are used with the appropriate LI-COR light meter or data logger. Configurations are also available to allow these sensors to be used with other logging devices, PLCs, and various data acquisition systems.

	•	Rapid Pulse DO port
	•	pH or pH/ORP port
	•	3 ISE ports
A pressure sensor is an option on both versions.
Available optical sensors include ROX optical dissolved oxygen, blue-green algae, chlorophyll, turbidity, or rhodamine.
The 6600 V2 will log all parameters at programmable intervals and store up to 150,000 data sets.
Additional parameters include:
	•	Salinity
	•	Specific Conductance
	•	Depth or Shallow Vented Level
	•	TDS
	•	Open-channel Flow
	•	Nitrate-nitrogen, Ammonia/Ammonium-nitrogen, or Chloride
You can rely on the accuracy and reliability of YSI's sensor technology - the performance of select sensors on the 6600 V2 has been ETV Verified.*
GEMINI Go-Anywhere DC Vacuum Pumps

200 torr; 8 to 13 L/min
Powerful, Portable, & Economical
Lab or Field Usage
Advanced Chemical Resistance

Simplify your sampling and preparative procedure with Welch's GEMINI pump. Use the same powerful, light-weight vacuum pump in the lab. or in the field! 

Quiet GEMINI pumps use DC motors, powered by an AC adapter unit in the lab or a 12 VDC adapter for your vehicle. Pump fumes up to 13L/min/achieve vacuum to 190 Torr. 

GEMINI gives you enhanced chemical resistance - tolerant beyond aqueous fumes for use with solvents and weak acids/bases.
GEMINI's high perfomance components will not corrode. Chemical resistance is built in with polyarylamide heads and Viton diaphragms, tubing and valves. The oil-free dry pump design provides top performance in a portable durable package.
