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.

Middle East Sediment Cores Show Downfall Of Empires Linked To Drought

Some of the world’s great empires may have partially been brought down by drought, according to the results of a study led by scientists at the University of Miami. The researchers sampled throughout what was once the Middle East’s Fertile Crescent to make the find. Scientists at the university were assisted by others at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in the work that saw them gathering sediment cores nearly 8 meters long in a peat bog near the headwaters of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. From there, chemical and geological tracers helped them construct a high-resolution history of precipitation in the region going back to 13,000 years ago.

Surface Water Model Turns Out To Be Great For Studying Animals

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati working to develop a modeling tool to predict levels of a common element in surface water have found that the tool is remarkably useful for studying extinct and living animals, according to a release . The mathematics-based tool looks specifically at the ratio of strontium 87 to strontium 86. Scientists at the school tested the tool with different materials to gauge its accuracy, including water, soil and vegetation. They also looked at animal tissues like the skeletal remains of fish and mammals. The UC researchers found that the tool worked well with all of the materials, but was most successful in predicting the ratios of strontium found in mammals.

U. Hawaii Scientists Find New Butterfly In State’s Islands

Scientists at the University of Hawaii have found a new butterfly living in the state, according to a release . The last time such a discovery occurred was in 2008, they say, and is rare given the fact that many species are endemic to single islands. The new butterfly is called the Sleepy Orange, and is found throughout the southern continental United States. Researchers say it was first seen on the Hawaiian island of Waialua in December 2013, and began to spread to four other islands within a year. Scientists are amazed at how fast the Sleepy Orange has been able to spread throughout the state’s archipelago. They point out its broad living ranges, from sea level up to 6,800 feet, could be helping it thrive. Top image: Sleepy Orange butterfly. (Credit: F.
