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.

Student Researcher Finds Relationships Between Underwater Sounds And Coral Death

Coral reefs have a lot to deal with these days. Ocean acidification is a rising threat, as are warmer ocean temperatures. In addition, studying reefs can involve somewhat invasive methods like sensor deployments or sample extractions. But a student at Illinois Wesleyan University has found that studying reefs doesn’t have to be intrusive at all. All scientists have to do, she says, is listen. Madz Negro, an undergraduate student pursuing degrees in music and ecology at the school, conducted an experiment on reefs near Panama’s San Blas Islands in April and May 2015. The work was part of a study abroad trip she took. Using a hydrophone, headphones and a digital recorder, she observed sounds that the reefs gave off as a means to assess their health.

Combating Climate Change Through Forest Management About More Than Carbon Capture

Scientists have known for years that forests absorb and sequester carbon from the atmosphere, making these ecosystems potentially valuable tools for mitigating the impacts of climate change. But forests also interact with the climate in other, more complicated ways. Scientists at Dartmouth College led a study and found that forests’ roles in combating climate change extends beyond their capacity for carbon capture, and, in some cases, the climate incentives for earlier timber harvests exceed those involved with long-term growth and carbon storage. The researchers examined trade-offs in climate change mitigation benefits between three forest ecosystem services: timber provisioning, carbon capture and albedo, or the reflectivity of the land surface.

Beach Sand Found To Hold More Bacteria Than Seawater

A press release from the University of Hawaii at Manoa summarizes the conclusions of a recent study to look at fecal bacterial counts in beach sand versus seawater. Scientists have known that levels of fecal bacteria on beaches are higher than those in seawater for the past 10 years, but the study’s results helped them pinpoint by how much. The U. Hawaii researchers found that beach sand holds 10 to 100 times the fecal bacteria that seawater does. To study the levels, they simulated sewage-contaminated bacterial growth in lab-created sand and seawater microcosms.
