Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
How does a Polarographic DO sensor work?
In a polarographic sensor, the cathode is gold and the anode is silver. The system is completed by a circuit in the instrument that applies a constant voltage of 0.8 volts to the probe, which polarizes the two electrodes. The sensor operates by detecting a change in this current caused by the variable pressure of oxygen while the potential is held constant at 0.8 V. The more oxygen passing through the membrane and being reduced at the cathode, the greater the signal increases.
Why is the Polarographic sensor warranted for 1 year while the Galvanic is only warranted to 6 months.
Galvanic sensors continually consume the anode, even when the instrument is off. The consumption of the polarographic sensor stops when the instrument is turned off, giving it a longer sensor life.
Is this sensor approved by the EPA?
Yes, the proven technology of the steady-state sensor is approved by the US EPA for compliance monitoring and reporting.

Mississippi Gulf Coast fish kill expected to continue

Officials at the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources say that a recent fish kill along the state’s Gulf coast is the largest they’ve seen, according to KVUE . The fish kill has brought dead crabs, eels and stingrays ashore. Beachgoers were disturbed by the large-scale kill, but experts explained that conditions this year were to blame. With higher temperatures and low dissolved oxygen near the sea floor, creatures that live there were more likely to be affected. The fish kill, beginning July 1, was the first of 2013 for the area. It was expected to last several more days, but lessen over that period.

First Environmental Monitoring System For Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.

Parasite Behind Yellowstone River Fish Kill Found In Other Rivers

A parasite that caused a massive fish kill in Montana’s Yellowstone River has been found in at least seven other rivers in the state, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle . Scientists with the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department made the find. So far, the parasite has been confirmed in the upper and lower Madison, East Gallatin, Bighorn, Stillwater, and Boulder Rivers. It had already been confirmed in the Jefferson and Shields Rivers. The microscopic parasite causes proliferative kidney disease, one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout. The effect of the disease on Yellowstone’s fish populations is exacerbated by other stressors like near-record low flows, consistent high temperatures and the disturbance caused by recreational activities.
