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.

Hurricane Hermine: USGS Scientists In Eight States Sampled Through Storm

As Hurricane Hermine developed in the Gulf of Mexico and moved to the northeast, massive storms crossed parts of Florida and other states along the eastern seaboard. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists in eight states responded to the sudden development, using many different techniques to forecast and track coastal flooding. Working quickly and making decisions based on the National Hurricane Center’s latest forecasts of the storm’s track, agency scientists used sophisticated water level sensors specially designed for fast deployment to measure storm-tide and waves along coastal sections in Florida, the Mid-Atlantic and New England.

Invasive Green Crab Found By Washington Citizen Scientists

Citizen scientists volunteering with the Washington Sea Grant have found an invasive green crab on San Juan Island, according to a release from the University of Washington. The spotting marks the first time that the invasive species has been found in inland Washington waters. The volunteers are part of Washington Sea Grant’s Crab Team, an early detection and monitoring program to look for European green crab and collect information on local marine life. They found a single, large, 3-inch adult male crab during a regular monitoring activity. Their efforts help the sea grant but also the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, which is responsible for controlling aquatic invasives in the state.

Morgan Shoal: Hotspot Of Biodiversity In Lake Michigan

Unstudied for decades, Lake Michigan’s Morgan Shoal has been surveyed for the first time by researchers at Shedd Aquarium, according to the Chicago Tribune . The 32-acre sheet rests in shallow waters about 300 feet off the Chicago shoreline. Though regular passersby probably think that Morgan Shoal is just a bunch of algae-covered rocks, there’s actually an incredible amount of life it supports. To document the shoal’s biodiversity, scientists used underwater cameras and buoyed nets. They also made scuba dives to visually document what lifeforms lurk beneath the surface. Drones have been used in past efforts to image the shoal from the sky. Their survey, completed in spring 2016, revealed a surprising amount of biodiversity in Morgan Shoal.
