Questions & Answers
My DO% samples read low and then high to low, is this a bad reading?

The initial power up can make the first two DO% readings read low. These readings can be disregarded.

My sonde is reading a negative value for turbidity, did I calibrate incorrectly?

A sonde (even if cleaned properly) can contaminate to almost 1.0 NTU. Typically the average contaminant level ranges from 0.2 to 0.8 NTU. With this knowledge, you can enter this offset (0.5 NTU) using the sonde's One-Point Calibration feature. This calibration is only done after a two- or three- point calibration is completed. To do a One-Point Calibration after a two- or three- point calibration: Place the sonde in a container of zero standard or filtered DI water. Use of the supplied calibration/storage cup is recommended; however, any generic glass or plastic container can be used as long as the probe guard is installed. Enter the Turbidity offset as 0.5 NTU, operate the wiper and inspect for air bubbles. Wait at least 60 seconds after the last wiper to accept the calibration point.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.

The Coevolutionary Arms Race: Fungus-Growing Ants and Social Parasites

Despite the negative stereotypes surrounding social parasites, Rachelle Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, knows just how important host-parasite relationships are to evolution. Like many ecologists, Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, found her passion for nature in childhood. “It began when I was a kid. I had this general interest of nature, and I loved to spend time in the forest, exploring,” she recalls. Her desire to work with wildlife was solidified in college. “I didn’t know exactly what direction I was going to head in but the ecology and evolution classes I took were really central to shifting my perspective on ‘what is biology.’ It opened my eyes to seeing nature in a different way,” she explains.

Coral Resilience: Determining the Fate of Coral in a Changing Climate

It’s no secret that the Great Barrier Reef is dying, as are many beautiful reefs created by coral all over the world. Excessive heat and ocean acidification have taken their toll. But Andréa Grottoli, distinguished professor of earth sciences at The Ohio State University, President of the International Coral Reef Society, Director of the Coral Bleaching Research Coordination Network, and a Fulbright Fellow, believes that all is not lost. Grottoli has found that the fate of coral is tied to one characteristic: its resilience. “In my 20s, I decided I wanted to work on a problem to improve the world,” she recalls.
