Dissolved oxygen meters have been serving limnologists and water managers for years with electrochemical probes that take time and skill to collect representative data.
YSI’s latest handheld dissolved oxygen meter, the ProODO , takes all the guesswork out of dissolved oxygen readings by using an optical dissolved oxygen sensor to obtain consistent results, regardless of user expertise.
The YSI ProODO was designed to improve on the faults of electrochemical probes. “The advantage is that the meter requires little expertise to get a good reading,” said Laura St. Pierre, YSI product manager.
The probe uses light instead of a chemical reaction to measure dissolved oxygen concentrations. The optical dissolved oxygen probe never needs a warm-up time and doesn’t consume oxygen.Read More
Officials at the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources say that a recent fish kill along the state’s Gulf coast is the largest they’ve seen, according to KVUE . The fish kill has brought dead crabs, eels and stingrays ashore.
Beachgoers were disturbed by the large-scale kill, but experts explained that conditions this year were to blame. With higher temperatures and low dissolved oxygen near the sea floor, creatures that live there were more likely to be affected.
The fish kill, beginning July 1, was the first of 2013 for the area. It was expected to last several more days, but lessen over that period.Read More
Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.Read More
