Overview
Included with virtually every 6-Series sonde, the YSI 6560 provides reliable temperature and conductivity readings. The YSI 6560 Temperature/Conductivity Sensor is extremely linear and accurate within its 0.5% accuracy specification when calibrated anywhere in the range.

Temperature
YSI utilizes a high-precision thermistor 2252 ohms at 25 C (+/-1%) for temperature measurement. Resistance changes with temperature, and the 6-Series sondes convert resistance into C, F, or K automatically. Best of all, the temperature sensor is calibration and maintenance-free.

Conductivity
Four pure-nickel electrodes allow the YSI 6560 to accurately determine the conductivity of a sample. Along with conductivity, the YSI 6-series sonde can calculate specific conductance, salinity, resistivity and total dissolved solids.

  • Range: -5 to +50 C
  • Resolution: 0.01 C
  • Accuracy: +/-0.15 C
  • Warranty: 1 year

Cooling water from Northeast U.S. power plants keeps rivers warmer

Rivers are a vital cooling source for power plants, but high-temperature water returned to rivers from the plants may detrimentally heat rivers and change aquatic ecosystems, according to a recent study. Scientists from the University of New Hampshire and the City College of New York gathered federal data on power plants and river systems and linked up river flow and heat transfer models to figure out just how hot rivers get in the northeastern U.S. They found that about one third of heat generated in thermoelectric power plants in the Northeast is drained into rivers via used cooling water. Just more than a third of the total heat generated at plants in the Northeast is converted directly into electricity for consumer use.

What is Conductivity?

UPDATE : Fondriest Environmental is offering their expertise in conductivity through their new online knowledge base. This resource provides an updated and comprehensive look at conductivity and why it is important to water quality. To learn more, check out: Conductivity, Salinity and TDS. Salinity and conductivity  measure the water's ability to conduct electricity, which provides a measure of what is dissolved in water. In the SWMP data, a higher conductivity value indicates that there are more chemicals dissolved in the water. Conductivity measures the water's ability to conduct electricity. It is the opposite of resistance. Pure, distilled water is a poor conductor of electricity.

CastAway Doubts about Conductivity, Depth and Temperature Monitoring

The Sontek CastAway-CTD is a castable device that measures conductivity, temperature and depth. The instrument has been used in the field for over a decade by oceanographers, limnologists, divers, fishers and educators. There have been few changes since the first iteration in 2010, showing that the instrument is durable and accurate without requiring new models.   The CastAway is the first conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) instrument of its kind. While other CTDs are large and cumbersome to deploy, with cages and isolated sensors, the CastAway is a small, lightweight and easy-to-use instrument. Typical CTDs utilize pumps to ensure water flows over the sensors during deployment.
