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.

Monitoring for Runup Signals to Reduce Sneaker Wave Risk

Around the world, the occasional phenomenon known as sneaker waves poses a threat to beachgoers. Unusually large sneaker waves in 2016 and 2018 prompted Oregon State University (OSU) researchers to investigate these mysterious events. The research revealed the presence of runup signals that can provide earlier warnings to officials, reducing risk from these dangerous events. Dr. Tuba Ozkan-Haller of OSU spoke to EM about the research . “Sneaker waves occur in the Pacific Northwest, but they're also a worldwide phenomenon,” explains Dr. Ozkan-Haller. “Certain kinds of coastlines appear to be more well-suited to the occurrence of these waves. There are some characteristics that we know play into it, but there's still a lot of unknowns too.
