Details

The next generation YSI ROX is a luminescent-based dissolved oxygen sensor that offers YSI customers the most powerful tool for making long-term oxygen measurements in severe fouling and low oxygen environments. Its rugged design and large measurement range make it ideal for sampling, flow cell, and groundwater measurements.

The YSI 6450AF ROX optical sensor uses an integrated wiping system to provide anti-fouling in the most hostile environments. Durable mechanical features include a non-corroding titanium wiper shaft, replaceable wiper shaft seal, and a new switch controlled wiper parking system to prevent mis-parking.

The ROX sensing system is based on the luminescence lifetime method. This method was chosen because it offers the most stable, repeatable and sensitive method for oxygen detection, thus reducing sensor drift and prolonging deployment times.

YSI's optical DO membrane differs from the traditional electrochemical sensor membrane, requiring fewer steps for installation and less maintenance. ROX membranes will last for one year and are made of a durable material that is unlikely to be damaged in the field. The ROX sensor eliminates stirring dependency that was required of most traditional polarographic sensors.

Toxic Chemicals in Plastic Pollution Littering Freshwater Habitats

When we consider the glut of plastic rapidly accumulating all over the world , it's easy to see the problem of pollution and disposal of substances that don't biodegrade. However, it's not always as apparent to us that plastic pollution also means a growing number of toxic chemicals in the environment, many of which can be harmful to ecosystems. Plastic polymers and the products made from them are wildly diverse as to chemical properties, composition, and range of potential applications, although most plastics are made from petrochemicals. Throughout the very long lifespan of any given plastic product, the material may release various hazardous substances .

CO2 Cacophony in Acidified Oceans Will Confuse Baby Fish

Ocean acidification is a simple process that has complex effects. Increasingly acidic ocean waters create a cascading series of changes and problems for marine life, as each response to the changing conditions prompts other crises. Recent research from the University of Adelaide reveals a novel problem: baby fish will have more trouble finding and reaching shelter in the acidified oceans of our shared future, placing populations of various fish at risk. Despite how they may seem to humans, oceans are not silent worlds. They are filled with all sorts of noise, from fish sounds and whale vocalizations to the sounds produced by different kinds of habitats.

Grand Lake St. Marys Management Practices Improving Water Quality

What does it take for a lake to go from being the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) poster child for cyanobacteria to genuinely being in recovery and improving year by year? It takes a concerted community effort, best water quality management practices, and patience. At least, that's what it's taken for those working to improve the water quality of Grand Lake St. Marys—and recent research proves that all of the effort and patience is paying off. Stephen Jacquemin , associate professor of biology and research coordinator at the Wright State University Lake Campus, has been spearheading research efforts on the lake for several years, and those efforts go back more than a decade.
