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.

With Unlucky Location, Greenland Ice Sheet Is Disappearing Quickly

Researchers at multiple universities and NASA have uncovered the rapid shrinking of an ice sheet in Greenland using technology from the space agency. This shrinking, they say, could add more than a meter to global sea levels if the ice sheet melts completely. Scientists on the project hail from the University of California, Irvine, University of Kansas and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The ice sheet of interest, called Zachariae Isstrom, has been studied for decades. Scientists at NASA have used highly sensitive radar sounding equipment, gravimeters and laser profiling systems mounted to airplanes to dissect its shifts.

Pyunicorn Software Reveals Climatic Tipping Points

The more complex data are, the harder it is to identify trends. Especially in the case of large, complex systems, it can be difficult to detect a trend that is somewhere between linear and pure chance. Climate systems, for example, are complicated to analyze, as are nonlinear weather patterns. However, a new programming language called pyunicorn has been created to reveal extremely complex information such as climatic tipping points, according to a release from the American Institute of Physics . Pyunicorn synthesizes two concepts: complex network theory and nonlinear time-series analysis. A complex network can be biological, social or technological in nature, and it typically has patterns that are not quite regular but also not purely random.

U. Hawaii Study Dissects Origins Of Earth’s Water

Scientists at the University of Hawaii have answered a key question about Earth’s past. According to a release from the school , researchers there have confirmed that water was present on planet Earth from the very beginning, not deposited here by asteroids as some had hypothesized. The researchers made the determination by analyzing rocks from Baffin Island in Canada with ion-microprobe instruments. These helped them to zero in on super-tiny pockets of glass inside the rocks and find small amounts of water within. From there, they used the ratio of hydrogen to deuterium to figure out where the water came from.
