Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
I turned on the YSI 5100 meter which has a YSI 5905 probe attached. The reading came up all zeros. Turned off and on a few times, wiggled the cord and it corrected itself. What could be the cause?
It sounds like there is a short in the cable that is causing a communication issue between the probe and the meter. We can evaluate the probe at no cost to verify the failure. Click the Support link above for instructions on returning the probe for evaluation.
How is the probe powered?
The 5905 probe is powered by an attached DO meter. However, the stir paddle must be plugged into its power adaptor to operate, as it is not powered by the meter.
What meters is this BOD probe compatible with?
The 5905 BOD probe is compatible with four YSI dissolved oxygen meters: Models 52, 58, 5000 and 5100 . If used with benchtop models 5000 or 5100, the YSI 5011 adaptor is required.

Niagara Region joins real-time beach monitoring movement

But when public health officials learned that gaps in the standard testing protocols could lead to unsafe beaches being left open or safe beaches kept closed, they put a plan in motion to join the shift in beach science towards more timely predictions based on real-time water quality data. The Niagara Region's issues were part of a growing recognition that the "persistence model" of monitoring for E. coli — an indicator of harmful pathogens in swimming water — isn't always adequate. "We sample today and kind of assume that whatever the result is is going to persist the next day or for future days," said Glen Hudgin, environmental health manager with Niagara Region.

Wasps turn ladybugs into zombie nannies

A new report outlines how parasitic wasps turn ladybugs into mindless caretakers, according to a Science News article . Scientists learned the Dinocampus coccinellae deploys a mind-controlling virus via the eggs sacks it lays inside ladybugs. The RNA virus reproduces in the host’s brain, causing zombie-like behavior, tremors and paralysis. Once the larvae hatch, they spin cocoons and the ladybugs watch over them. However, once the ladybugs recover from the virus, they resume normal behavior. Researchers conclude the the wasps are using the virus as a means to control potential hosts instead of using a neurotoxin.

North American megadroughts represent an unprecedented climate shift

A study published in Science Advances predicts that future droughts will last much longer than originally estimated. The research compares future drought projections to records from the past 1,000 years in the U.S. Southwest and Central Plains. The researchers from NASA, Cornell, and Columbia found that these exceedingly long droughts, referred to as “megadroughts,” are becoming more common because carbon emissions in the atmosphere are changing the climate. The study states that the current droughts “will likely exceed even the most severe megadrought periods of the Medieval era … representing an unprecedented fundamental climate shift with respect to the last millennium.
