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.

Study: Groundwater use exceeds recharge in up to a third of major global aquifers

Considering how long humans have relied on the Earth’s groundwater supplies for survival, industry and agriculture, we know relatively little about the processes that drain and replenish it. More alarming still, scientists can’t agree on how much groundwater is left. A pair of recently published studies used NASA satellite data to quantify groundwater stress, and highlighted major shortcomings in our understanding of the global groundwater supply. These studies are the first to use satellite data to determine groundwater loss. Papers detailing the results of each study are available online in Water Resources Research. One paper compared groundwater stress — defined by use versus availability — to replenishment rates in 37 major basins around the world.

Study finds wastewater injections behind increase in Oklahoma earthquakes

More earthquakes than usual have been hitting Oklahoma lately. While researchers say those quakes would have happened anyway, oil production practices are making them happen much sooner than usual, according to a release from Stanford University’s School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences . Wastewater from oil production injected into the Arbuckle Formation has been causing pore pressure increases in its rocks, resulting in more frequent earthquake disturbances. The Arbuckle Formation lies 7,000 feet underneath Oklahoma and essentially acts as a sedimentary disposal system for oil producers, who inject it with saline wastewater.

Researchers say Gulf of Mexico dead zone to be size of Connecticut in 2015

The Gulf of Mexico dead zone is predicted to be about 5,483 square miles this year, according to a recent press release from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration . Also known as the hypoxic zone, the dead zone is the area of water in the Gulf with the lowest oxygen and relatively little marine life. Although the dead zone for 2015 may seem quite large, the area has been stable in size for several years, researchers say. For the first time, results of four models were combined to give the estimate. Combined results from several models are also referred to as an ensemble forecast. Nutrient runoff and stream data from United States Geological Survey was used for model input.
