Marine surveys estimating fish population density and diversity are crucial to our understanding of how human activities impact coral reef ecosystems and to our ability to make informed management plans for sustainability. KAUST researchers recently conducted the first baseline surveys of reefs in the southern Red Sea by comparing reefs off the coast of Saudi Arabia with those of Sudan1. "A major issue is that there is no established historical record for Red Sea ecosystems," said Dr. Darren Coker, who worked on the project with KAUST M.Sc. Alumnus Alexander Kattan and Professor Michael Berumen all of the University's Red Sea Research Center. "This means we can only hypothesize what the natural reef environment would have looked like before human interference through fishing began." Berumen's team systematically compared 14 Saudi reefs with 16 offshore reefs in Sudan. The reefs are around 200-300 Km apart and share almost identical environmental conditions in terms of sea temperature, climate and coral species. However, Saudi Arabia has a long-established history of fishing, while Sudan does not. "There is much more to the story than just the numbers of fish we see," said Berumen. "We collected and analyzed data between and within regions to look at fish abundance, biomass and community diversity across all the reefs surveyed." "To minimize potential bias, I conducted all the survey dives myself," said Kattan, who trained intensively to ensure he could correctly identify fish species and accurately estimate their size underwater. "A friend helped me practice in a pool by diving with different sizes and shapes of simulated fish on popsicle sticks! Because size estimates were converted into biomass, it was vital that I was able to gauge sizes correctly." The team found that the biomass of top predators in the Sudanese reefs was almost three times that of the Saudi reefs. The top predators were far rarer in Saudi Arabian waters, a phenomenon that the researchers attribute to fishing pressures. Furthermore, fish abundance was around 62 % higher in Sudan and biomass was 20 % higher. There was also slightly greater diversity on the Sudanese reefs. "This is the strongest evidence yet of the impact of fishing on Saudi Arabia's reefs," said Berumen. "While Saudi Arabia appears to have lost many larger fish, these species, including top predators, have not completely disappeared, so there is an opportunity to turn the situation around. Saudi's reefs could be restored to the condition of the almost pristine Sudanese reefs through careful management and protection, and they could one day thrive as eco-tourism sites."

« NREL researchers capture excess photon energy to produce solar fuels; higher efficiency water-splitting for H2 | Main | Workhorse releases specs for coming W-15 extended range electric pickup » Suzuki Motor Corporation, Toshiba Corporation, and Denso Corporation have reached basic agreement on establishing a joint venture company for production of automotive lithium-ion battery packs in India, and signed the agreement. The initial capital expenditure will be ¥20 billion (US$184 million). The joint venture company will be capitalized at ¥2 billion (US$18.4 million), with the planned participation ratio of Suzuki 50%, Toshiba 40% and Denso 10% respectively. The battery pack manufacturing joint venture by the three companies will provide a stable supply of lithium-ion battery packs in India. The joint venture company will be established within 2017 and will move to manufacturing phase at earliest possible timing. In India, higher attention is being paid to environment, with new Bharat Stage (BS) VI emission standards for light- and heavy-duty vehicles, as well as two- and three-wheeled vehicles, to go into effect in 2020. BS VI essentially brings Indian motor vehicle regulations into alignment with European Union regulations, with the exception of the norms for three-wheelers, which are not yet at European levels. Frost & Sullivan noted that the Indian automotive industry’s movement towards Bharat Stage (BS) VI compliance will have far-reaching implications for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), especially in the diesel engine segment. With regulations governing diesel engines expected to become tighter, the cost of compliance will be up to $1,200 for diesel cars. Frost & Sullivan suggested that the mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV), with its exceptional cost advantage, could be a solution, and forecast that by helping diesel engines balance cost efficiency and BS VI compliance, this powertrain segment could well capture almost 18% of the total market in 2023. However, the Government of India (GoI) recently decided to exclude mild hybrids from its scheme for Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles in India (FAME). Frost & Sullivan does not see this as a problem. Various OEMs, especially Maruti Suzuki and Mahindra & Mahindra, are intensifying focus on MHEVs due to their ability to improve fuel efficiency and make the cars more economical to own over the course of its ownership. For instance, the new Ertiga from Maruti Suzuki that features SHVS technology pushes up its fuel efficiency from about 20.8 Km/L to 24.5 Km/L. The recent withdrawal of incentives under FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles) is not expected to have a significant impact in the sales of mild hybrid vehicles as it comes with a strong cost of ownership advantage that renders the incentive relatively insignificant.

Major road construction project has begun in the area; Company pays taxes on Mining title BARRANQUILLA, COLOMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb 15, 2017) - New Colombia Resources, Inc. ( : NEWC) ("New Colombia" or the "Company"), a Colombian company listed in the U.S. with premium metallurgical coal properties and medical marijuana operations, is pleased to announce that on Monday, February 13, 2017, they met with the local environmental agency (CAR) in Guaduas to accelerate the issuance of their environmental permit to begin rock and coal mining operations immediately. The Company was very pleased with the outcome of the meeting and anticipates a smooth transition from exploration to mining. The CAR expressed a desire expedite the environmental license quickly now that all protocols are met. Earlier this month the Company received notice approving the addition of Gravel to their Work Plan for coal, now they need a license from the environmental agency. They will be meeting again with the CAR next week to coordinate another site visit that leads to final approval. The Company is also meeting with road contractors to execute a purchase order to supply road material for this project. New Colombia Resources has spent the past several years gearing up for a major mining project in Guaduas. The project will begin with rock mining to supply gravel to the local Ruta del Sol, the largest road project in South America. This 1000 km highway system is complete except a 23 km stretch from Guaduas, 3 km from company property, to Villeta. The original plan for this stretch was changed due to conservation issues, then redesigned to interconnect through the area where the Company is setting up mining operations. Last month construction begun on the San Miguel Interchange which will connect the Ruta del Sol to the Company's property. During a surprise visit to the construction site by Colombia's Vice President Vargas, head of Colombia's infrastructure projects, he reported 34% of the project is complete and on schedule to be finished by May 2018. To see an article about his visit, go to http://www.eltiempo.com/economia/sectores/calzada-faltante-entre-villeta-y-guaduas/16798548 The 23 km being built consists of an 18 Km two lane highway and 5 km of tunnels and bridges which run through the company's mining concessions, which are 6 km from the San Miguel Interchange. The road contractor is obligated to build access roads from the Greenfields where New Colombia has their property to the Ruta del Sol. This is very beneficial to New Colombia since they will use these access roads to haul coal down to the Ruta del Sol. "I invite all shareholders to come down and see this operation. The benefit to our company is immeasurable since we will not only sell building material to build the roads, tunnels, and bridges, but we will use these to haul coal to export terminals next year. The government's redesigned road project saves our company an incredible amount of money on building haul roads adding value to our company," commented John Campo, President of New Colombia Resources. New Colombia Resources also reports payment of the taxes and insurance policy on their 1186-hectare mining concession, JJF-15481, that they plan to co-develop with interested parties they are negotiating with. The property runs 12 km parallel to the Ruta del Sol. To see the receipt of payment, visit https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxSKP5j2FlseOGg3Rzc5RmduQW8 The Company would also like to inform shareholders that they expect their 10K to be filed at any time and will be making significant announcements regarding their medical marijuana endeavors afterwards. On February 3, 2017, New Colombia received notice from the Agencia Nacional de Mineria (ANM) of the APPROVAL of the addition of Gravel to their existing approved Work Plan (PTO) for metallurgical coal. Use the link below to see the notice on ANM's website (see page 30, Contrato de Concession ILE-09551), https://www.anm.gov.co/sites/default/files/atencion_minero/estado_015_del_03_de_febrero_de_2017_bogota.pdf Now that the PTO has been approved, the company will begin negotiations with the road contractors in the area.

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - 9 fév. 2017) - Les Ressources Yorbeau Inc. (TSX:YRB.A) (la « Société » ou «Yorbeau») est heureuse d'annoncer que deux foreuses sont présentement en activité sur ses propriétés Caribou et Beschefer dans le nord-ouest du Québec. Les deux projets sont respectivement localisés dans le secteur de la mine Casa-Berardi et dans le secteur de la Ceinture de "Detour Lake" où l'exploration connaît une importante hausse des activités depuis quelques mois (Figure 1). Pour voir la Figure 1 : http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/Figure1Feb92017.pdf Le projet Caribou est situé dans le nord-ouest du Québec environ 95 km au NE de la ville de La Sarre et est accessible par des routes publiques et forestières menant à l'ancienne mine Estrades. Le programme de forage en cours est localisé le long de l'extension ouest de la mine Estrades où l'exploration effectuée par Cogitore à mené à la découverte en février 2009 d'un nouveau gîte de sulfures massifs. Six forages ont déjà intersecté une mince lentille (feuillet) de sulfures massifs mais de haute teneur; la moyenne pondérée de ces six forages a donné jusqu'à présent des teneurs de 3,3 % Cu, 6,5 % Zn, 1,7 g/t Au et 66,1 g/t Ag sur une longueur de 1,5 mètres. Le programme de forage prévoit 2 500 mètres centrés sur des anomalies géophysiques (conducteurs) à proximité du gîte connu, dans le but d'y rechercher une augmentation des épaisseurs. La propriété Beschefer est située dans le nord-ouest du Québec, environ 140 Km au NE de la ville de La Sarre et 190 Km à l'ouest de Matagami. La propriété est facilement accessible via les routes publiques et forestières menant à l'ancienne mine Selbaie située à 10 km au nord-ouest de la propriété. À noter que la propriété est située immédiatement à l'est du gîte B-26 pour lequel Soquem a publié des ressources minérales en 2016 dans un Rapport Technique en conformité aux règlementations NI 43-101. Le gîte B-26 consiste en une minéralisation polymétallique contenant du cuivre, du zinc, de l'or et de l'argent avec des ressources minérales de 6,68 Mt à 1,1 % Cu et 0,5 % Zn dans la catégorie indiquée, et 3,99 Mt à 1,6 % Cu et 0,8 % Zn dans la catégorie inférée. Les roches felsiques hôtes de la minéralisation B-26 ont été identifiées et retracées à travers la propriété Beschefer de Yorbeau. Le programme de forage prévu comprend 3 350 mètres répartis dans 8 sondages pour la vérification d'anomalies géophysiques (conducteurs) localisées généralement le long de l'extension Est du gîte B-26 et de l'empilement de roches felsiques hôtes. La propriété Rouyn détenue à 100 % par la Société contient quatre gîtes aurifères connus dans le corridor Augmitto-Astoria, long de six kilomètres et situé dans la partie ouest de la propriété. Deux des quatre gîtes, Astoria et Augmitto, ont des infrastructures souterraines substantielles et ont fait l'objet de rapports techniques conformes au Règlement 43-101, lesquels comprennent des estimations de ressources. Yorbeau et Kinross Gold Corporation (« Kinross ») ont récemment signé une convention d'option qui prévoit l'octroi à Kinross d'une option permettant d'acquérir une participation de 100% dans la propriété Rouyn de la Société (voir les communiqués de presse datés des 25 octobre 2016 et 14 décembre 2016). En 2015, la Société a élargi son portefeuille de propriétés d'exploration en effectuant l'acquisition de propriétés stratégiques de métaux de base dans des régions à haut potentiel dans la ceinture Abitibi du Québec et de l'Ontario qui offrent une infrastructure favorable au développement minier. Les propriétés de métaux de base nouvellement acquises incluent la propriété Scott Lake, laquelle est l'hôte de ressources minérales importantes. La Société détient également la propriété Beschefer, laquelle est adjacente au gisement B-26 de SOQUEM et est située dans une région où l'intérêt pour l'exploration s'accroît. Des renseignements additionnels concernant la Société sont disponibles sur le site web de la Société au www.yorbeauresources.com. Énoncés prospectifs : À l'exception des données historiques, toutes déclarations faites dans le présent communiqué en ce qui concerne, mais sans s'y limiter, les nouveaux projets, les acquisitions, les plans futurs et les objectifs sont des énoncés prospectifs qui peuvent contenir certains éléments impliquant des risques et des incertitudes. Rien ne saurait garantir que de tels énoncés s'avéreront exacts. Les événements et résultats réels pourraient grandement différer des prévisions et attentes exprimées par la société.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 2, 2017 / Oyster Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Oyster" or the "Company") (TSX-V: OY) is pleased to announce that effective 1st March 2017 Oyster has received Government of Djibouti approval to commence exploration activities under Phase III of the Production Sharing Contract ("PSC)". Phase III is for a duration of three years to the end of February 2020. Technical Update: Oyster has undertaken extensive exploration activities across its four exploration blocks in Djibouti over the past 5 years, however the main exploration focus in the last year has been in Block 1 located in the southeast of the country. The Block is substantially onshore, but also includes the adjacent offshore acreage and covers an area of 3,400 Km². Results of the 2016 airborne gravity and magnetics survey conducted by Bridgeporth indicate that the target Mesozoic sedimentary basin, which outcrops in the southwest of Djibouti, extends across most of Block 1. In January 2017, Oyster's technical team with support from Energy Ministry personnel conducted scouting field trips across this large 'potential fields area' to evaluate the scope for the next phase of exploration activities including an onshore seismic campaign. Dr. Phil Roach, Head of Exploration commented: "Oyster is delighted to proceed to the third exploration phase in Djibouti, and is grateful to both the Energy Ministry and CERD for their continued support. We are targeting a Mesozoic basin which is seen in outcrop in the southwest of the country, since the Mesozoic basins on the south side of the Gulf of Aden were once contiguous with the prolific hydrocarbon basins in Yemen to the north, prior to the opening of the Gulf of Aden. Our work programmes over the last 5 years have been thoughtfully designed to de-risk the various elements involved and have been extremely successful to that end. Geological fieldwork in southwest Djibouti has already confirmed the presence of a Jurassic oil source, reservoir and seal. The areal extent of the Mesozoic basin in Block 1 remained a major uncertainty, but the results from the airborne survey surpassed expectations and indicates that the basin does extend throughout most of Block 1. The airborne survey has also allowed us to high-grade a specific area for seismic acquisition in the near future." ABOUT OYSTER OIL AND GAS LTD Oyster is an international oil and gas exploration company with a focus on Eastern Africa. Oyster holds production sharing contracts interests with the Government of Djibouti and the Government of Madagascar. Oyster holds a 100% working interest in Block 1101, onshore Madagascar which covers approximately 2.8 million acres.; Oyster also holds 100% of four blocks comprising approximately 3.5 million acres onshore and offshore in Djibouti.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 16, 2017 / (TSX-V: XIM) Ximen Mining Corp. (the "Company" or "Ximen") is pleased to announce its upcoming plans for 2017. "We are anticipating a very active and busy 2017 on all three projects, The Brett Gold Project, The Gold Drop project and the Treasure Mountain Silver Zinc base metal project. All projects have permitting in place for drilling and the later two are being funded by our option partners." says Christopher Anderson, president and chief executive officer of Ximen Mining. Currently the company has been conducting a comprehensive logging and sampling program on the 16 HQ diamond drill holes totaling 2364 meters, that was completed last fall, but was subject only to a selective sampling program as news released on November 21st 2016. There is currently three of the 16 holes that have been logged and sampled and submitted to ALS, results are expected shortly. The company has been working towards finalising a 43-101 for the Brett Gold project and plan to have this completed by end of this quarter. A 43-101 has recently been completed on the Treasure Mountain Silver Zinc base metal project and this will be released to the publicly once the option agreement has been approved. The updated 43-101 for the Gold Drop project can be viewed on the sedar. The company plans to bring on a full-time VP of exploration dedicated to the advancement of the Brett Gold Project specifically. Currently the company has been conducting interviews and a final decision is expected in the next 30 day. The Senior advisors to Ximen will be playing an active roll this year in the field. Execute a 2017 drilling program, which will be based on upcoming drill results for the last drill program now being processed for results as well as the upcoming 2017 field exploration work, that is expected to beginning in May The company plans to conduct an Airborne magnetic survey over the 200-sq km land package. Active hydrothermal systems contain acid fluids which destroy natural magnetite, and these become magnetic lows void of magnetite. Targeting magnetic lows during a gold search is part of the exploration process. A contract will be awarded once we identify the company that can provide superior results. Below is a 1.5 Km by 1.5 Km mag survey conducted by Ximen in the 2014 field season, mag lows are represented in the areas of blue and purple. The large area in blue at the top left has little to no out crop. The 2014 drilling did produce wide spread low grade gold intersection however Ximen is focused on developing the high grade gold opportunities with in this large epithermal system.

The hand held instrument identifies individual alteration minerals in rocks, which can then be contoured to better define the hydrothermal system and develop new targets. Spectral analysis is an important practice in the mining industry as it complements other data sets and helps geologists to see more subtle mineral changes that are difficult to detect in mapping or core logging. Samples have been collected and will be submitted early next week for analysis. The company plans to install a portal door on the existing adit, which leads to 1400 feet of development, additionally, it includes 300 feet of development over three raises. Al Beaton And Alex Mcpherson were the original contractors who carried out the original tunnel work and are advising Ximen. The tunnel was examined in 2015 by Al Beaton who reported the workings in excellent shape which will require only minor rehabilitation . To view the images for the Original Adit Stockpile, please click on the following links: https://www.accesswire.com/uploads/ximage3.png https://www.accesswire.com/uploads/ximage4.jpg During the development of the original adit and the three raises, material was removed and stock piled. Ximen plans an auguring and sampling program this year to test the overall viability of this material. Surface grab sampling from the 1200 ton stock pile in 2014 resulted in gold values ranging from 2 to4 grams gold per ton. It is estimated that there is approximately 1200 tons of this material from the portal stock piled just out side the entrance. The first raise targeted the high grade hole RC88-11, which assayed 2.03 oz/t over 235 feet. Additionally, samples at the back end of the adit from the other two raises assayed 1oz/ton gold. Ximen plans to map and resample the tunnel and the three raises to better define the gold mineralization It is estimated that there is approximately 5000 tons of material directly associated with, and surrounding the original RC88-11 hole, and this sampling program will better define the extent of this material. This 300 ton bulk sample was removed at surface over 1000 metres away from the original RC88-11 hole. It was processed at Cominco's smelter and returned 1oz gold 2 oz silver per ton of ore with a 96% recovery. As of today this mineralization has remained open. Ximen has completed plans to redesign opening where the bulk sample was taken to ensure that the overall integrity of the walls meet current standards. As well in the redesign, planning will provide an access point for an additional adit to provide access to a new undeveloped area of mineralization. Plans have been completed, but will be subject to further drilling and geological modeling. In the process, it is expected that a small amount of material similar to that of the previous bulk sample will be generated.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 16, 2017 / (TSX-V: XIM) Ximen Mining Corp. (the "Company" or "Ximen") is pleased to announce its upcoming plans for 2017. "We are anticipating a very active and busy 2017 on all three projects, The Brett Gold Project, The Gold Drop project and the Treasure Mountain Silver Zinc base metal project. All projects have permitting in place for drilling and the later two are being funded by our option partners." says Christopher Anderson, president and chief executive officer of Ximen Mining. Currently the company has been conducting a comprehensive logging and sampling program on the 16 HQ diamond drill holes totaling 2364 meters, that was completed last fall, but was subject only to a selective sampling program as news released on November 21st 2016. There is currently three of the 16 holes that have been logged and sampled and submitted to ALS, results are expected shortly. The company has been working towards finalising a 43-101 for the Brett Gold project and plan to have this completed by end of this quarter. A 43-101 has recently been completed on the Treasure Mountain Silver Zinc base metal project and this will be released to the publicly once the option agreement has been approved. The updated 43-101 for the Gold Drop project can be viewed on the sedar. The company plans to bring on a full-time VP of exploration dedicated to the advancement of the Brett Gold Project specifically. Currently the company has been conducting interviews and a final decision is expected in the next 30 day. The Senior advisors to Ximen will be playing an active roll this year in the field. Execute a 2017 drilling program, which will be based on upcoming drill results for the last drill program now being processed for results as well as the upcoming 2017 field exploration work, that is expected to beginning in May The company plans to conduct an Airborne magnetic survey over the 200-sq km land package. Active hydrothermal systems contain acid fluids which destroy natural magnetite, and these become magnetic lows void of magnetite. Targeting magnetic lows during a gold search is part of the exploration process. A contract will be awarded once we identify the company that can provide superior results. Below is a 1.5 Km by 1.5 Km mag survey conducted by Ximen in the 2014 field season, mag lows are represented in the areas of blue and purple. The large area in blue at the top left has little to no out crop. The 2014 drilling did produce wide spread low grade gold intersection however Ximen is focused on developing the high grade gold opportunities with in this large epithermal system.

The hand held instrument identifies individual alteration minerals in rocks, which can then be contoured to better define the hydrothermal system and develop new targets. Spectral analysis is an important practice in the mining industry as it complements other data sets and helps geologists to see more subtle mineral changes that are difficult to detect in mapping or core logging. Samples have been collected and will be submitted early next week for analysis. The company plans to install a portal door on the existing adit, which leads to 1400 feet of development, additionally, it includes 300 feet of development over three raises. Al Beaton And Alex Mcpherson were the original contractors who carried out the original tunnel work and are advising Ximen. The tunnel was examined in 2015 by Al Beaton who reported the workings in excellent shape which will require only minor rehabilitation .

Ximen plans an auguring and sampling program this year to test the overall viability of this material. Surface grab sampling from the 1200 ton stock pile in 2014 resulted in gold values ranging from 2 to4 grams gold per ton. It is estimated that there is approximately 1200 tons of this material from the portal stock piled just out side the entrance. The first raise targeted the high grade hole RC88-11, which assayed 2.03 oz/t over 235 feet. Additionally, samples at the back end of the adit from the other two raises assayed 1oz/ton gold. Ximen plans to map and resample the tunnel and the three raises to better define the gold mineralization It is estimated that there is approximately 5000 tons of material directly associated with, and surrounding the original RC88-11 hole, and this sampling program will better define the extent of this material. This 300 ton bulk sample was removed at surface over 1000 metres away from the original RC88-11 hole. It was processed at Cominco's smelter and returned 1oz gold 2 oz silver per ton of ore with a 96% recovery. As of today this mineralization has remained open. Ximen has completed plans to redesign opening where the bulk sample was taken to ensure that the overall integrity of the walls meet current standards. As well in the redesign, planning will provide an access point for an additional adit to provide access to a new undeveloped area of mineralization. Plans have been completed, but will be subject to further drilling and geological modeling. In the process, it is expected that a small amount of material similar to that of the previous bulk sample will be generated.

EnnoLogic has introduced a new digital hand held anemometer. The new anemometer measures 8 weather parameters, including wind speed, wind chill, air temperature, humidity, heat index, dew point, barometric pressure, and altitude.. The device features Max and Hold functions and includes an LCD display with backlight. The unit comes in a Velcro-close holster and runs on a LIR2032 battery included in the package. The first anemometer in the ennoLogic line, the eA890R is designed for use in measuring wind speed and direction and other weather parameters. The meter provides 8 different weather measurements for complete outdoor weather monitoring in a single unit. The Hold and Max functions allow tracking of relative conditions over time. The meter’s LCD display has a backlight and there is an auto power off with an override option. It also includes a calibration function. The digital anemometer eA890R provides weather monitoring capabilities that can be useful to hikers, bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Anemometers have gained popularity with model plane and drone enthusiasts who use the devices to protect against loss and damages to their craft by testing localized wind and weather conditions before take offs and landings. Wind conditions affecting small model craft can vary dramatically in relatively small localized areas as a result of topographical features such as hills, valleys, ravines and plateaus, causing sudden up or down drafts, gusts and other wind anomolies which can be hazardous to model craft. Anemometers allow model flight enthusiasts to test conditions across potential flight paths so they can avoid damage and loss of equipment. Homeowners and HVAC professionals also use anemometers to measure wind speed in heating and cooling ventilation systems. Air speeds in intake registers and outflow vents can be compared to determine blocked filters or other obstructions in the system, as well as testing in order to balance air flow throughout the air circulation system. The meter features easy to use wind speed readings which can be displayed in miles per hour (MPH), meters per second (M/S), feet per minute (F/M), knots (K) or kilometers per hour (Km/H). This makes it easy for users working with different types of craft instrumentation to select the matching settings for their craft. Tracking minimum and maximum wind speed readings, wind direction and other weather paramters over time allows model craft pilots to develop data sets which make it easier to predict future conditoins when planning flight days based on local weather predictions. The ennoLogic eA980R is available for purchase at Amazon.com. EnnoLogic is a brand of high-quality electronics products with a focus on measurement and test instruments. The brand’s goal is to offer reliable, accurate, high-quality technology products at affordable prices, backed by exceptional customer service and suport. The ennoLogic brand was founded in 2013 in Eugene, Oregon. For more information, please visit http://ennoLogic.com
