Hach Intellical LDO101 Field Optical DO Sensors
- Reliably test in the harshest environmental conditions
- Alerts the user when re-calibration is needed
- Can be moved between meters without the need to re-calibrate or re-enter measurement settings
The Hach Intellical LDO101 Field Optical DO Sensor is a digital, luminescent/optical dissolved oxygen (LDO) probe. This rugged DO sensor is built with a stainless steel body, ensuring sufficient weight to the probe for easy outside handling. The sensing part is protected by a shroud, and the connection is ensured by strong and visible yellow cable onto which the depth markers (optional accessories) can be clipped, making the LDO101 rugged models specially designed for field use. The rugged LDO101 is available with a 5, 10, 15, or 30 meters cable.
The LDO101 is fitted with an automatic pressure sensor module and a temperature sensor. The DO sensing cap comes with an iButton to track days in use and remind the remaining life of the sensing cap element. The LDO101 Rugged is ideal for measuring dissolved oxygen in all types of external environments such as rivers, surface and ground waters, ponds, lakes, sea, wastewater plants, source water, drinking water reservoirs for water quality, and other environmental and treatment process purposes.

The value of multi-lake studies is well understood by international organizations like the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) and the scientists who work tirelessly to provide data to the larger network. Rebecca North, an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia , is one of many researchers involved in multi-lake research initiatives and conducting research locally in her home state.
Having been born and raised on the shore of Lake Ontario, North grew up in a community that revolved around water. She also saw firsthand one of the worst water quality bodies of the world, the Bay of Quinte, decline throughout her lifetime.Read More
It is no secret that in today's world, most scientists do not stick exclusively to science–they must be educators, communicators, and advocates. The looming threats facing the planet's climate and the growing distrust in science by the public have forced scientists to expand and improve their capacity for science communication to the world.
From repeatedly testifying before the U.S. Congress to winning an Emmy as the Chief Scientific Advisor for an award-winning nature documentary, marine ecologist James W. Porter has been thrust into the public eye.Read More
Historically, water quality monitoring during the winter has been difficult and often avoided altogether—however, monitoring throughout the year can highlight the influence of various environmental stressors and track the changes systems undergo during the winter. In particular, long-term monitoring efforts in systems like Mohonk Lake can underline the effects of climate change and acid rain.
David Richardson, a professor of biology at the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz , spends his time outside of the classroom monitoring the nearby watersheds. After getting his engineering undergraduate degree, Richardson realized he wasn't interested in the typical job offerings and applied to an ecological science graduate program at the University of Maryland.Read More
