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.

Sensors to measure plants' environmental responses under development

A group of European researchers is developing a set of microsensors that embed into plants to measure their responses to environmental changes, according to Tree Hugger . They plan to share findings of their work publicly. The scientists are trying to tap into the natural signals that plants use to communicate with one another. These include the release of chemicals that warn other plants of impending attacks from insects or other threats. The project is called PLEASED , for PLants Employed As SEnsing Devices. It has already garnered $1.46 million in funding from the European Union.

Russian scientists begin studying Siberian crater

After a large crater opened up in Siberian permafrost, scientists are working to figure out what could have caused the novel geological event, according to Dot Earth . On the scene are researchers with Russia’s Scientific Center of Arctic Research. So far, they’ve determined that the crater was not formed via an eruption, but through an ejection. Internal processes below the Earth’s surface, possibly through a build-up of pressure, caused the permafrost to eject. Similar processes, scientists say, are known to have taken place 8,000 years ago in the area. And many lakes that sit on the same peninsula as the crater are believed to have formed through comparable means.

Colorado State University cars map methane leaks with LI-COR sensors

The cars of Google Street View are accustomed to transporting unorthodox passengers. A suite of panoramic cameras, laser rangefinders and GPS equipment ride atop each vehicle, gathering data and images for use with Google Maps and the company’s other projects. But a collaborative effort between the Environmental Defense Fund, Colorado State University and Google Earth Outreach is equipping Street View cars with instruments that will help map methane leaks in major cities across the U.S. In addition to Google’s nation-roaming vehicles, CSU designed a car for intensive local monitoring and experiments. The Street View cars are equipped with a Picarro methane concentration analyzer that measures methane every half-second.
