The YSI 6436AF Turbidity Probe is a fouling-resistant, wiped sensor designed to seamlessly integrate - using no external interface hardware - with all YSI sondes that contain an optical port. The YSI 6436AF provides accurate, in situ measurement of turbidity in fresh, brackish, and sea water, as well as other applications requiring highly accurate turbidity data.
The YSI 6436AF sensor can be used in combination with those YSI sondes that have optical ports - 600 OMS, 6820, 6920, 6600, or 6600 EDS (Extended Deployment System) - and a YSI 650 MDS handheld display-logger. Make surface as well as vertical profile measurements. In addition, the YSI 6136 in combination with one of the YSI data-logging sondes can be used for unattended continuous monitoring or integrated with data collection platforms for real-time data acquisition.
- Range: 0 to 1000 NTU
- Resolution: 0.1 NTU
- Accuracy: +/-2% of reading or 0.3 NTU, whichever is greater
- Warranty: 2 years
The only other difference is the depth rating. The 6436 is depth rated at 200m while the 6136 is depth rated at 200 ft.
Yes, the 6436AF can be used in fresh, brackish, or seawater.

Two autonomous underwater vehicles are drifting through Lake Ontario, monitoring a slew of environmental metrics, according to a release from New York Sea Grant. The high-tech equipment is recording data on fish productivity, food web changes and algae levels.
Each AUV weighs 42 pounds, is six and a half feet long and has a slew of sensors, including side scan sonar and 10-beam Doppler. Mapping capability complements collected parameters like temperature, turbidity, pH and levels of oxygen and phosphorus, among others.
The research is made possible through the Cooperative Science Monitoring Initiative between the US and Canada called for under the Clean Water Act of 1972.Read More
Wind probably isn’t the first thing that people think of when considering causes of poor water quality, but sediment disturbances caused by the combination of shallow waters and high winds are threatening the health of Iowa’s Storm Lake.
Although Storm Lake looks picturesque from a distance, the resuspension of sediment is affecting water clarity and exposing harmful nutrients in the water.
Led by Clayton Williams and John Downing, professors in Iowa State University’s Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology, a research team has begun monitoring the lake to determine the causes and potential solutions to the lake’s sediment issues.Read More
Researchers at Clemson University will help the South Carolina Department of Transportation monitor pollutants discharged from construction sites, according to a release . The state agency wants to make sure it is ready for future federal pollution requirements.
Turbidity monitoring near active SCDOT construction sites will judge the effectiveness of the agency’s stormwater runoff protocols. SCDOT will then design enhanced methods to better control runoff from construction sites.
Heavy metals, toxic substances and biological pollutants are all associated with runoff from the sites. The study to find better ways to manage the pollutants is funded by a three-year grant from the federal government.Read More
