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.

Mapping Wastewater Treatment Systems In Linn County, Iowa

Homeowners that don’t have the ability to connect to a municipal sewer system typically use some other form of wastewater treatment system on site. Placing such systems isn’t the easiest thing to do and has been the source of many a headache for installers and inspectors. In the past, the placements of these systems were drawn out using pencil, paper and stencils. As is pretty clear, those methods aren’t the most accurate way to do it. Officials with the Linn County Public Health Department in Iowa realized the waste in time and resources that was going toward those outdated efforts and have streamlined their operations by using GPS receiver technology for quicker and more accurate placements.

"Asian Monsoons" Affected By Seawater Temperatures

“Asian monsoons” affect the tropics to the mid-latitudes in Asia, where large areas experience wet and dry seasons. According to a release from the University of Tsukuba , years of data point to a decline in “Asian monsoon” rainfall over time. In addition, modeling results suggest the rainfall seems to be directly related to seawater temperature distribution in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Because the rainfall is directly tied to not only flooding damage but also agricultural success, understanding the reasons behind the rainfall weather patterns and gaining the ability to predict them is of great importance. University of Tsukuba faculty performed numerical simulations using climate models and compared them to available rainfall data.

Warmer Lakes Hurt Lake Trout In Experimental Lakes Area

Research carried out at Canada’s Experimental Lakes Area has found that lakes in the region have warmed by 0.4 degrees Celsius over each of the past five decades, according to TB NewsWatch. The effects of the higher temperatures have been felt by fish in the lakes. Lake trout, in particular, seem to have gotten smaller thanks to the shift in temperatures. Scientists say that the average size of adults of the fish have gotten smaller over time. This trend is also showing up for other freshwater species that favor colder waters for spawning. In addition, runoff from increasing summer rains is causing water discoloration, which affects the heat distribution of lakes and could be making the effects to lake trout worse.
