The YSI Cable Grip Kit is designed to add redundant protection to your Field Cable, Flying Lead Field Cable, or Vented Flying Lead Field Cable for EXO and ProSwap Logger systems. Proper installation allows the 316 Stainless Steel (SS) parts to add additional support, and offers the best corrosion resistance currently available for high-fouling monitoring applications. The cable grip can serve many functions.

EXO Cables
Primary purpose is to act as a backup sonde retention system by clamping near the sonde connector end of the cable. It may also be used to provide strain relief for the connector (optional). The EXO cable connector is robust and does NOT require strain relief, but some users may opt to utilize this feature.

ProSwap Logger Cables
Provides a point of suspension or mounting for the ProSwap Logger by clamping near the connector end of the cable. This may be necessary to secure the cable for standalone applications. If connecting to an external power supply or DCP, the cable grip may be used as an optional retention system.

Crystal Clear Problems: Impacts of Water Transparency in Aquatic Ecosystems

From crystal clear alpine lakes to muddy rivers and boggy swamps, water transparency is an easily observable water quality parameter to anyone who takes a few moments to peer into the (sometimes) murky depths. Water transparency varies dramatically based on the location of bodies of water among different watershed environments, but it can also change quickly due to a variety of internal and external factors. At Miami University (OH), the Global Change Limnology Lab explores the many ways that water transparency impacts aquatic ecosystems. Operational for nearly 20 years, the lab trains undergraduate and graduate students and has conducted work from the midwest Great Lakes to Alaska, South America and New Zealand.  The Global Change Limnology Lab, headed by Dr.

Lake Malawi: A Treasure to Protect

Lake Malawi (also known as Lake Nyasa and Lake Niassa) doubles as a Rift Valley Lake and one of the seven African Great Lakes. Due to its unique biodiversity, it’s a great place to conduct limnological studies. Harvey Bootsma is a professor for the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and has had an interest in limnology ever since he was a kid. Bootsma fondly recalls summer vacations to Georgian Bay, Ontario, “I probably spent as much time in the water as I did out of it.” He continues, "I remember telling myself, ‘I’m going to get a job where I can stay here all the time.’” While Harvey didn’t end up working on Georgian Bay, he was offered a job working on Lake Malawi. He continued working there while completing his Ph.D.
