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.

Mountaintop ming "valley fills" leave streams salty for decades

Streams emerging from piles of rocky debris leftover from mountaintop removal mining operations often harbor salinity levels that are harmful to aquatic life, and many will take two or three decades to recover to safe levels. That's according to a recently published study of 137 so-called "valley fills" in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Scientists evaluated water quality data collected before, during and after valley fill construction, in which excess rock and mining byproducts are pushed into valleys and replanted. Though specific conductance data — a surrogate for salinity — from each phase wasn't available for every site, the analysis found that surface waters rose significantly after fill construction and replanting before beginning to taper off.

Modified trawler seeking Great Lakes plastic pollution

A Great Lakes gillnetter captain is working with University of Michigan researchers to seek new quarry throughout Lake Erie: tiny bits of plastic. Great Lakes Echo reported that the research trip comes amid many states’ consideration of legislation that would ban plastic microbeads from products. Funded by a $270,463 grant, the research will record where plastic is found and analyze samples to determine how harmful the debris may be on the Great Lakes’ ecosystem. Samples will be gathered from aboard the Nancy K, a trawling vessel converted into a floating field station by its captain David Brooks. Brooks is a retired engineer who has worked with scientists through the Earthwatch organization for 25 years.

Tropical fish moving toward poles, devouring kelp forests

While colorful schools of tropical fish may entice and dazzle divers, their migration away from the planet’s equator is causing underwater kelp forests and seagrass meadows to disappear, Think Progress reported. In a phenomenon known as tropicalization, tropical fish are moving toward the poles as temperate waters grow warmer and more hospitable. As they migrate, they devour vegetation that other fish rely upon. Off the southern coast of Japan, tropicalization has led to a 40 percent loss of kelp and algal beds over 20 years.
