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.

Global warming projections claim 3-degree hike this century

The world is on track to warm by 3 degrees Celsius by the end of this century, according to Grist . But the projection may not be as bad as it sounds, as it comes from figures released annually that have made higher warming projections in the past. In fact, the 3-degree warming projection is the lowest that the Climate Action Tracker has ever calculated. The projections drop, according to those overseeing the tracker, is due to newly proposed actions to mitigate climate change. The new actions put forth by China, the European Union and the United States reduced total projected warming by almost 0.5 degrees at century’s end, the climate tracker notes. Substantial certainty still remains, however, as China’s economy continues rapid expansion.

New fracking forum pledges to reduce environmental impact

Concerned by the effects of fracking, several groups have banded together to create a new forum designed to improve the environmental and economic impacts of fracking, according to a recent article in Chemical and Engineering News . The new group includes the American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute and companies such as Apache, Marathon Oil, Rockwater Energy Solutions and Dow Chemical. The forum has been named GCI’s Hydraulic Fracturing Roundtable. The forum plans to address the waste produced by fracking, especially large amounts of contaminated water. They’ll also be trying to reduce hydrocarbon emissions and the amount of chemicals used in fracking operations, among other measures.

Rare stonefly vanishing from Glacier National Park streams as glaciers melt

The 25 remaining glaciers of Glacier National Park are projected to melt away by 2030, and a new study suggests a rare stonefly found only in the park could disappear with them. The western glacier stonefly, Zapada glacier, had previously been found in just six alpine streams within a single drainage in the park. Recent surveys found the stonefly in two previously undocumented locations, but shows it has likely disappeared from five of the six streams known to harbor populations in their cold, glacier-fed waters. "I spent a lot of time over two or three summers trying to hunt this thing down," said Joe Giersch, an aquatic entomologist with the U.S. Geological survey and lead author of the study, which was published in the journal Freshwater Science .
