The Conductivity meter

You will use this in the Rocky Shores section of your trip.
Dip the tip of the probe into the water.
Take care not to dip it in beyond the mark. 
Choose an appropriate scale to get a reading.

The instrument is robust enough for student use provided it is not

  • dropped or
  • allowed to get wet.
If you should have an accident, please report it to the staff. Accidents happen, and we will only be cross if we find out later, especially if you got the meter wet and it is too late to rinse and dry it.
