How do I account for atmospheric pressure?
The SensION+ DO6 meter does not include an internal barometer, so atmospheric pressure will need to be input manually. The meter will default to a pressure of 1013 mbar, though this can be adjusted based on local readings.
Why does the manual say I can measure parameters besides DO?
Hach uses an all-inclusive manual for all of the sensION+ series portable meters. Each meter can only measure its specified parameter(s), as noted on page 4.
Acadia National Park, the oldest national park east of the Mississippi, sits off Maine's Atlantic coast and covers most of Mount Desert Island — an unlikely name for a landmass covered in lakes and ponds. One of those is Jordan Pond, the deepest on the island, which is a famously clear lake in a state famous for clear lakes. "Jordan Pond is historically one of the most transparent lakes in Maine--or at least that's what they claim," said Nora Theodore, a masters student in ecology and environmental science at the University of Maine. And though the lake remains incredibly clear, decades of monitoring show the clarity is trending downward. "It's an extremely low productivity system, but that's been changing," she said. Transparency in Jordan Pond has been in decline since the 1990s.Read More
In the parched hills of the Sierra Nevada, researchers are surveying drought-weakened streams to see what effects long-term dryness is having on fish populations in the region. Their findings so far have been less than stellar, with sparse numbers of fish being counted. Still, as data collection is progressing, the researchers, who work out of the University of California, Davis’ Center for Watershed Sciences, are gathering insights that could aid in conservation efforts that are expected to grapple with coming climate changes. The purposes of the investigation are two-fold. “If we ever get rain again, we want to see how well these areas are recovering from drought,” said Rebecca Quinones, a postdoctoral researcher at the center and leader of the project.Read More
Each summer, deep ocean currents pull low-oxygen, high-nutrient water up onto Oregon's coastal shelf. This upwelled water is often implicated in the seasonal hypoxia that has become more frequent in the state's coastal waters. But a recent study of three summers of data from the ocean floor suggest that the upwelled water may also be the reason that matters aren't worse. Though scientists have known about the low-oxygen water making it's way onto the shelf for decades, the details of what happens once it gets there are foggy.Read More
