Overview
The YSI EXO conductivity & temperature sensor is a digital smart sensor featuring welded titanium construction and wet-mateable connectors. The YSI EXO conductivity & temperature sensor provides accurate and fast temperature data. Enables temperature compensation for other EXO probes. Conductivity data is used to calculate salinity, non-linear function (nLF) conductivity, specific conductance, and total dissolved solids, and compensate for changes in the density of water (as a function of temperature and salinity) in depth calculations if a depth sensor is installed.

Temperature Thermistor
The temperature sensor uses a highly stable and aged thermistor with low-drift characteristics. The thermistor’s resistance changes with temperature. The measured resistance is then converted to temperature using an algorithm. The temperature sensor receives a multi-point NIST traceable wet calibration, and the accuracy specification of 0.01˚C is valid for the expected life of the probe. No calibration or maintenance of the temperature sensor is required, but accuracy checks can be conducted.

Conductivity Electrodes
The conductivity sensor uses four internal, pure-nickel electrodes to measure solution conductance. Two of the electrodes are current-driven, and two are used to measure the voltage drop. The measured voltage drop is then converted into a conductance value in milliSiemens (millimhos). To convert this value to a conductivity value in milliSiemens per cm (mS/cm), the conductance is multiplied by the cell constant that has units of reciprocal cm (cm-1). The cell constant for the conductivity cell is approximately 5.5/cm ±10%. For most applications, the cell constant is automatically determined (or confirmed) with each deployment of the system when the calibration procedure is followed.

Temperature Compensation
EXO sensors have internal thermistors for quality assurance purposes. Turbidity uses the internal thermistor for temperature compensation, while all other EXO sensors reference the C/T probe for temperature compensation. To display and log temperature, a C/T probe must be installed in an EXO sonde. Thermistor readings are logged in the sonde’s raw data–viewable in KOR software–but are not included in data exported to Excel.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.

The Coevolutionary Arms Race: Fungus-Growing Ants and Social Parasites

Despite the negative stereotypes surrounding social parasites, Rachelle Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, knows just how important host-parasite relationships are to evolution. Like many ecologists, Adams, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, found her passion for nature in childhood. “It began when I was a kid. I had this general interest of nature, and I loved to spend time in the forest, exploring,” she recalls. Her desire to work with wildlife was solidified in college. “I didn’t know exactly what direction I was going to head in but the ecology and evolution classes I took were really central to shifting my perspective on ‘what is biology.’ It opened my eyes to seeing nature in a different way,” she explains.

Coral Resilience: Determining the Fate of Coral in a Changing Climate

It’s no secret that the Great Barrier Reef is dying, as are many beautiful reefs created by coral all over the world. Excessive heat and ocean acidification have taken their toll. But Andréa Grottoli, distinguished professor of earth sciences at The Ohio State University, President of the International Coral Reef Society, Director of the Coral Bleaching Research Coordination Network, and a Fulbright Fellow, believes that all is not lost. Grottoli has found that the fate of coral is tied to one characteristic: its resilience. “In my 20s, I decided I wanted to work on a problem to improve the world,” she recalls.
