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.

Undergraduate researchers study changing aquifers, sustaining streamflow

A few years ago, when a new science building in was in the works on the University of Southern Indiana, geology professor Paul Doss came to the architects with an idea: Let him drill two monitoring wells into the sandstone aquifer on the site and then build the rest of the building around them. They went for it, and data from the ground-floor lab has since provided some insights into how the aquifer functions while giving the undergraduate geology students a crack at meaningful real-world research. Pressure transducers at the bottoms of the 60-meter and 100-meter wells record water levels every hour and have produced a five-year continuous record of changes in the water table.

Surface temperatures show 2014 on pace to be one of hottest years ever

Data collected by scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration indicate 2014 might end up being one of the hottest years on record, according to TreeHugger . This comes after a fierce winter brought frigid temperatures to North America that hadn’t been felt for decades. Besides trending a little down in February 2014, global surface temperatures are so far on pace to claim the spot for the third hottest year since 1880. They are already 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the 20th century average. Warmer temperatures can make drought conditions, like those in California , worse. They could also have impacts on the prevalence of climate anomalies.

Arapaima, Amazon River's largest fish, edging on extinction

The Amazon River’s largest species of fish is edging toward extinction, according to The Washington Post . The fish, known as arapaima, are threatened by overfishing and a general lack of oversight for fishermen on the river. Researchers at Virginia Tech led a study finding that the fish are already extinct in 19 percent of 81 areas surveyed along the river. They also note increasing scarcity has not impacted demand for the fish because they are still being depleted. Arapaima are different from most fish because they can breathe oxygen through lungs, in addition to gills. It is thought that this ability could make them more vulnerable to fishermen who capture them when they surface for air.
