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.

New volcano theory rattles old notions of how eruptions work

Scientists say that our understanding of volcanic eruptions may be flawed, according to a recent  release by California Institute of Technology.  According to mantle-plume theory, volcanoes were thought to erupt by shooting lava in thin streams from constricted channels underground Thorough study of the Earth’s seismic activity has confirmed that there is no evidence to support the theory.   Instead, California Institute researchers found that the channels the lava travels through are nearly four times as wide as the proposed plumes and much closer to the mantle than originally thought.  Their new theory, “top-down tectonics,” could change how rock formation is understood.

Study questions human role in warming of Northwest U.S.

A study led by researchers at the University of Washington calls into question the role of human activity in the warming of the Northwest U.S., according to the New York Times . Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also contributed to the work, which has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences . The analysis looks more closely into wind, temperature and barometric pressure data for an expansive region of the Pacific Ocean that touches California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington. Researchers examining data from 1900 to 2012 found that a very strong relationship appears to exist between winds and changes to ocean temperature.

1,000-foot Amazon Tall Tower Observatory to monitor climate change

An observation tower to be built in the Amazon Rainforest will monitor its effects on climate change, according to the BBC . The gargantuan tower will hold instruments collecting data on greenhouse gases, aerosols and weather conditions. The Amazon Tall Tower Observatory is a joint project between Brazil’s National Institute of Amazonian Research and Germany’s Max Planck Institute. The two institutions will erect the tower, planned to be over 1,000-feet tall, to monitor fluctuations of gases over the forest and ultimately determine whether it is a net carbon sink or source. Data from the tower will be combined with those collected by smaller structures already in the region.
