The Environmental Monitor, an online newsletter hosted by Fondriest Environmental, put together a short news brief about the South Alabama Jag Ski back in August 2012 (and I’m just now getting around to writing about it). The writer, Austen Verrilli, did a nice job highlighting the capabilities of the Jag Ski, particularly those related to environmental monitoring. You can access the article by clicking on the image at right, or by {clicking here}.


If you haven’t checked out the product line and service capabilities of Fondriest Environmental, or followed their online news feed, I encourage you to do so. We purchase some of our calibration standards from Fondriest Environmental and have had nothing but good service from them.
