Questions & Answers
How does a Polarographic DO sensor work?

In a polarographic sensor, the cathode is gold and the anode is silver. The system is completed by a circuit in the instrument that applies a constant voltage of 0.8 volts to the probe, which polarizes the two electrodes. The sensor operates by detecting a change in this current caused by the variable pressure of oxygen while the potential is held constant at 0.8 V. The more oxygen passing through the membrane and being reduced at the cathode, the greater the signal increases.

Why is the Polarographic sensor warranted for 1 year while the Galvanic is only warranted to 6 months.

Galvanic sensors continually consume the anode, even when the instrument is off. The consumption of the polarographic sensor stops when the instrument is turned off, giving it a longer sensor life.

Is this sensor approved by the EPA?

Yes, the proven technology of the steady-state sensor is approved by the US EPA for compliance monitoring and reporting.

How often should the dissolved oxygen sensor be calibrated?

The DO readings should be verified before each use, and a YSI recommends performing a 1-point calibration before each use to maintain accurate readings. You can follow the instructions in the calibration guide for dissolved oxygen sensors.

Mississippi Gulf Coast fish kill expected to continue

Officials at the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources say that a recent fish kill along the state’s Gulf coast is the largest they’ve seen, according to KVUE. The fish kill has brought dead crabs, eels and stingrays ashore. Beachgoers were disturbed by the large-scale kill, but experts explained that conditions this year were to blame. With higher temperatures and low dissolved oxygen near the sea floor, creatures that live there were more likely to be affected. The fish kill, beginning July 1, was the first of 2013 for the area. It was expected to last several more days, but lessen over that period.

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.
