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.

University Of Utah Scientists Study Microbial Lifeforms In High pH Springs

Oddly enough, rocks don’t always need heat and pressure to metamorphosize. In the process of serpentinization , rocks actually change with a reduction in both heat and pressure. This process is underway in many places around the world, and researchers at the University of Utah are working to better understand it as well as the extremophile lifeforms that reside in the water bodies nearby. In one investigation, scientists at the university are sampling along the Tablelands Ophiolite in Canada’s Gros Morne National Park. Ultramafic rocks at this site, marked by low silica contents and rich mineral levels, are undergoing serpentinization and playing a role in the creation of highly basic natural springs that vent hydrogen and methane gas.

Plant Gases May Cool Arctic And Slow Global Warming

Researchers from the Department of Biology and Center for Permafrost at the University of Copenhagen recently made a startling discovery: The biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) produced by tundra plants may help slow down global warming in the Arctic, counteracting climate change effects across the rest of the globe as well. The BVOCs are naturally produced by tundra plants as defense against pests. However, the same compounds form particles which can then encourage cloud formation. The cloud formation, in turn, creates protection from solar heat, reducing warming. The experiments were conducted in Greenland. Tundra plants were studied in small greenhouses to mimic global warming effects.

Citizen Scientists Can Help Deep Hail Project

If you live in Colorado and use Twitter, Facebook or even plain email, researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder would like your help with the Deep Hail Project . The effort is looking to gauge the extent of extreme hail storms that sometimes impact the state. These storms can be large enough that they can leave roads impassible until plows make it out and clear them. While some of the icy white stuff is still out there, scientists at the university would like for interested citizen scientists to send them a few photos along with video, if possible, and a measurement of hail depth. With these measurements, researchers are planning to work with local National Weather Service (NWS) officials to improve understanding of hail that is produced by thunderstorms.
