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.

GLEON 10th anniversary marks a decade of collaborative lake research

The Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network turned 10 this month. According to the GLEON Facebook page , the group held their first meeting on the University of California San Diego Campus in March 2005. They've since led the lake science community in coordinating high-frequency sensor data from lakes across the planet. They didn't have their namesake acronym ready by the time many GLEON founders published this article in the journal BioScience , but the article lays the groundwork for the group's focus on wireless sensor networks "allowing ecologists and field biologists to engage in intensive and expansive sampling and to unobtrusively collect new types of data.

Longleaf pine-loving Bachman's sparrow needs more than isolated patches of forest to thrive, study says

Every organism, from human to hawk to hedgehog, has specialized traits that make it most suitable for one habitat or another. Some species are fine-tuned for living in particular types of habitats that may only occur across one narrow swath in the whole world. For these species, a lost acre of habitat is one less buffer between them and endangerment. The Bachman’s sparrow nests only in stands of longleaf pine, a tree that once grew all across the American Southeast. Today, the fire-dependent longleaf pine mostly grows in confined patches, surrounded by private development or farmland.

Arctic sea ice winter peak hits record-breaking low

The National Snow and Ice Data Center reports that Arctic Sea ice winter peak broke the record low set in 2011, according to Scientific American . Multiple factors caused the low peak including warm temperatures, a premature peak and shrinking sea ice levels. Typically, the sea ice reaches its peak in March. The sea ice extent was measured at 5.61 million square miles, about a 7 percent decrease from the 1881-2010 average. Arctic sea ice is closely monitored because of its importance to polar dwelling animals and its potential economic benefits. Research shows Arctic sea ice has declined by nearly 5 percent every 10 years. NSIDC scientists say ice thickness is a major concern and will release an analysis of winter ice thickness levels in April.
