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
For Paul Savoy, sailing on the Nathaniel B. Palmer research vessel as part of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) has been a dream come true, a “mountain top” for his career. “I grew up reading about the age of exploration, and the great polar explorers back in the day. Antarctica is one of the last remaining frontiers, along with the deep ocean and outer space. I was delighted to discover Antarctic research covers all three, with deep ocean research happening on the icebreakers and cosmological experiments at the South Pole. I’ve been applying for a job down here since I was 18. I got shortlisted a few times, but never actually got picked up until I was 32. Now I’m 35, and finally headed to the ice.Read More
