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 of Oregon dam removals finds rivers recover quickly

As dams age and ecosystem recovery becomes an increasing management priority, dam removal is becoming a common practice . Removing dams tends release a slug of accumulated sediment to the river downstream, which sometimes raises concern over the impacts of removal projects on habitat, flooding, and infrastructure. But the concern over those catastrophic impacts seemed inflated to Desirée Tullos, an associate professor of water resources engineering at Oregon State University. Tullos' new study in the journal PLOS ONE offers evidence that, from a biological and physical perspective, there isn't much evidence to back up those concerns.

Advanced buoys to assess U.S. offshore wind energy potential

Two advanced data buoys off the United States’ Pacific and Atlantic coasts will begin collecting data on offshore winds this November. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory scientists behind the project say the data will help assess the potential for offshore wind farms and cut costs for renewable energy. Will Shaw, project lead and an earth systems analysis and modeling scientist at the laboratory, said the buoys are specially outfitted NOMAD buoys from AXYS Technologies that have been “used worldwide for decades by oceanographers.” Each of the buoys has a self-contained computer to record and keep track of its data, Shaw said. The project's ultimate goal is “to answer physics questions and drive down the costs of providing offshore energy,” Shaw said.

England at risk of invasive species from Eastern Europe, models say

Researchers at the University of Cambridge have determined that southeast England is most at risk for the spread of invasive species from eastern Europe, according to The Guardian . Some of the exotic species are likely to already be there but have not yet been found, researchers say. The findings were made with modeling techniques that predicted the likelihood of 23 different species expanding in the country. Scientists also evaluated five species in particular to check how likely it is that they will increase in population and distribution. Most of the species evaluated in the study come from the Azov, Black and Caspian Seas , near Turkey and Ukraine.
