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.

Watershed groups handing tech to volunteers for better citizen monitoring

Watershed protection groups across the country are collecting water quality data on waterways that might otherwise miss out on monitoring entirely. Some have found that, despite small staffs, they can compile more high-quality data by putting water quality sensors and other professional scientific instruments in the hands of volunteers. For organizations like the Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, the reasoning for equipping volunteers with electronic handheld meters is clear: "We really want the data that we're collecting to be utilized," said Ben Pitterle, director of the group's watershed and marine program.

Infographic: Harmful algal blooms

The past few print editions of the Environmental Monitor have featured exclusive infographics on important environmental issues from our designer Nate Christopher. Starting today, we'll begin featuring those online. After a summer in which a toxic algal bloom in Lake Erie cut off 500,000 people in Toledo, Ohio, from the public drinking water supply , it seems apt to start with Nate's take on harmful algal blooms from the Spring 2014 issue (PDF) . We cover harmful algal blooms often here on the Monitor. This past summer I wrote about a water quality buoy near Toledo's water intake crib in Lake Erie , a project that was hastened by the bloom disrupted the city's water supply.

New International Space Station instrument will scan great lakes air

A new remote sensing instrument to be installed on the International Space Station will help track air pollution across the Great Lakes, according to Great Lakes Echo . The device is called CATS, for Cloud-Aerosol Transport System. It will use LiDar technology to measure clouds and air pollution across the region, zeroing in on things like dust and particulates. LiDar illuminates its target using laser beams and measures the amount of light reflected back. Though the instrument will scan the Great Lakes, scientists say CATS will be helpful in studies across the globe. It will replace a soon-to-be-retired instrument currently on the ISS.
