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.

St. Lawrence Seaway Holds Low-Oxygen Insights

The St. Lawrence Seaway has been called the gateway to North America, and rightly so. It extends more than 2,300 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the top of the Great Lakes. The seaway serves as a shipping route for commodities like iron, coal, grain and more as well as a recreational destination for boaters and fishermen. But the St. Lawrence Seaway is more than just a highway for freighters. Because of its location, it is also an important ecosystem for studying changes that occur in the ocean as a result of climate change. Recently, scientists at the University of Delaware have used the St. Lawrence Seaway as a location to study the issue of low-oxygen zones in the world’s oceans. These dead zones can’t support marine life like fish or crabs.

Lake Superior State University Plans Aquatic Research Lab Expansion

Planning is underway at Lake Superior State University to expand the university’s aquatic research lab . Both houses of Michigan’s legislature have already approved $8.8 million to construct the addition. All that’s left now is for Lake Superior State to raise $3 million in a capital campaign to cover the rest, according to the Sault Star. Officials at the university say that the expanded lab makes sense for the region, which is heavily dependent on Lake Superior for much of its economy. The lab’s location near an international border also makes the new addition worthwhile for those living on the Canadian side. The aquatic research lab at the university first launched in 1977.

Saving The Amazon By Selling Tea

Selling tea could save the Amazon, according to a recent Scientific American article . Runa LLC is partnering with Kichwa villagers to preserve the Ecuadorian Amazon by purchasing guayusa tea leaves. Tyler Gage and Dan MacCombie, founders of Runa LLC, wanted to market the tea but not at the expense of endangering the rainforest or displacing locals. So they employed about 3,000 farmers to collect tea leaves. As a result, the farmers generate revenue for their community and save their forests from being sold and cleared by developers. When indigenous communities have secure land rights, they are better able to tend and preserve their forests.
