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.

Groundwater wells near Barnett Shale fracking sites found with high aresenic levels

A new study by University of Texas researchers surveyed 100 wells atop the Barnett Shale natural gas fields and found that nearly 30 percent of them contained levels of arsenic deemed unsafe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Think Progress reported. All 29 of the wells that tested positive for unsafe levels of arsenic and other heavy metals were located within 1.8 miles of hydraulic fracturing operations. While the findings could indicate a connection between groundwater contamination and fracking, lead author Brian Fontenot told ProPublica , “I can’t say we have a smoking gun.” Barnett Shale is one of the largest gas reserves in the U.S. Along with Eagle Ford shale, another Texas natural gas field, the two reservoirs hold over 90 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas.

Rain Cell Africa group wants to boost cell tower-based rainfall monitoring

Scientists  in Africa want to partner with cell phone tower companies to track rainfall, according to a release from the  Instiut de Recherché pour le Développement . Cell towers cover a majority of the globe’s inhabited areas and track signal interruptions due to precipitation. The Rain Cell Africa partnership wants to use this information to enhance rainfall auditing. Their idea is based on telecommunications companies’ knowledge of rain’s effects on signal transmission.  Rain Cell Africa’s successfully partnered with a local cellphone operator company and had access to data recorded from a monsoon in 2012. They hope to convince other companies to participate.

On the Susquehanna Flats, scientists study stability of once-vanquished Chesapeake seagrass beds

Stretching nearly 20 square miles along the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay, the Susquehanna Flats are a prized spot among New England anglers. The thick grasses lining this underwater prairie provide shelter and sustenance for many aquatic species, and help filter water flowing into the Bay. But the Flats haven’t always been the lively haven they are today. A tapering decline in the 1960s due to excessive nutrient loading led to a sudden death in 1972 at the hands of Tropical Storm (formerly Hurricane) Agnes. The innocuously named storm pummeled the Bay with 19 inches of rain and 30 million tons of displaced sediment. When the skies cleared, the Susquehanna Flats were no more. Then, in the early 2000s, something odd happened.
