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.

GIS, Drones Help Protect Elephants From Poachers

Elephants have some of the largest ranges of any animal in Africa.They can routinely travel 20 to 40 miles in a day. Not surprisingly, this makes for tough work when trying to protect them against poachers. But what if it were possible to pinpoint the high-vulnerability areas and make more efficient patrolling easier? Using a geographic information systems (GIS) approach, researchers from Penn State University set out to test the idea in the Tsavo ecosystem in Kenya. The system is comprised of a number of parks full of dry and flat savannah and home to Kenya’s largest elephant population. It includes Tsavo East National Park, Tsavo West National Park, Chyulu Hills National Park, Ngai Ndethya National Reserve, Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary and the Lumo Wildlife Sanctuary.

Arizona Black Rattlesnake Advancing Toward Extinction

A combination of factors is pushing the Arizona black rattlesnake closer to extinction , according to scientists at the University of Arkansas. These include drought, wildfires and limits to its range. The snake is somewhat cornered, according to a paper detailing its threats posted in the journal Royal Society Open Science . It can’t seem to get a foothold in territories past the Grand Canyon and Colorado River along the Colorado Plateau. The impacts of human activity combined with that restriction in moving to new areas has hurt the snake’s numbers. U. of Arkansas researchers suggest that designating the snake as threatened under the Endangered Species Act could help wildlife officials develop some of the plans needed to help protect it in the future.

Ammonia From Agriculture Big Disruptor Of Nitrogen Cycle

While industrial emissions continue to affect the nitrogen cycle, technological improvements have curbed some emissions sources, such as from vehicles, in a big way. Meanwhile, not as much has been done to curb other nitrogen emissions, namely ammonia from agriculture. Ammonia in recent years has surpassed nitrates from vehicle emissions as the bigger source of nitrogen pollutants, according to researchers from Colorado State Universit y. Ammonia is not currently present at toxic levels in the atmosphere, but it is a precursor to ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate, particulates which can be harmful to humans. Nitrogen can be deposited via rain or snow, called wet deposition, or directly to the Earth’s surface as gas molecules or particles, called dry deposition.
