March 2019

Summer in the Mid-Atlantic can be HUMID! That's why we are featuring IPI's Dew Point Calculator as our July Resource of the Month. The Dew Point Calculator is a web-based application, so no download is necessary. In addition, the Dew Point Calculator can be used with any web browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) on a Macintosh or a PC. To learn more about how the Dew Point Calculator can be applied to environmental monitoring, refer to the following articles, also available on IPI's website:Understanding Dew PointWhy is Dew Point Important for Managing my Environmental Conditions?, and Winter Dryness and Its Effects on Collections.
