Note: All optical DO membranes are now manufactured from anti-fouling copper alloy; these membranes directly replace black plastic membranes. Anti-fouling membranes can be used on existing ROX probes with no detrimental effects on data. The copper-alloy YSI 6155 optical DO membrane may arrive with surface patina and/or discoloration. This will not affect membrane performance.
- (1) YSI 6155 optical DO membrane
- (3) Installation screws
- (1) Hex wrench
- (1) Instruction sheet with calibration coefficients
The 6155 kit comes with everything required for installation. To replace the membrane, remove the old membrane and clean around the probe face. Make sure the surface under the membrane is clean and dry before replacing. After replacing the new membrane, power the sonde and enter the calibration constants (K numbers included with the membrane kit).

A group of high schoolers in the Green Bay, Wisc. area are learning about careers in environmental science thanks to the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program . The program, supported by the University of Wisconsin, has involved more than 700 students since its 2003 launch.
“We have almost ten years of data,” said Annette Pelegrin, program coordinator. “It began in 2003 with five watersheds. We’ve trained teachers and schools that are interested and showed them how to measure different parameters.”
Those include flow, temperature, transparency and turbidity of the program’s streams. YSI 55 meters are used to measure dissolved oxygen and levels of phosphorus, ammonia and nitrogen are checked with a Hach colorimeter.Read More
The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents.
Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river.
An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.Read More
The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use.
Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.Read More
