[eBook] Global Explorers: Navigating Climate Data

No single topic touches as many aspects of the YSI business as climate science. In this eBook we celebrate the people behind the instruments, who are collecting the streams of data, that provide us with a snapshot of the health of our planet.

Check Out YSI’s Latest eBook: The EVOLUTION of Water Quality Monitoring

YSI recently released a new eBook that document the ever changing story of water quality monitoring and how we fit into the world of environmental stewardship.

Fabien Cousteau TED Talk. 31 days of underwater adventure & science with the EXO Sonde.

In this delightful and informative TED Talk, Fabien Cousteau, grandson of the world-famous Jacques Cousteau, speaks on breaking his fathers record for days spent underwater. After spending 31 days at the underwater research laboratory Aquarius, Mr. Cousteau shares with us the tools used, and the lessons learned about sponge science and climate issues.   “Now, […]

Coral Reef Sponge Science – A Cure for What Ails You?

We are sharing this EXO-focused story from our main YSI blog. Already the source of components for two cancer drugs, sponges are one of our best chances to find the cure for cancer, heart disease and other human ailments. And they filter all the water flowing over a coral reef every couple of days.

EXO and Storm3: Real time public data made easy.

A combination of the EXO platform and Waterlog Storm3 data-logger have been deployed in unison at various sites around Georgetown, South Carolina.

Saving Time with Real-Time Data

For most scientists, measuring quality data is a significant and time consuming part of research. That is where the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) comes in…

Effective 6-Month Deployment in Marine Waters

The EXO2 water quality sonde was deployed alongside an Aanderaa Seaguard instrument under the cold saltwater of the Koljoe Fjord in Sweden. Water temperatures from October to May ranged from 0 to 12ºC (32 to 54ºF). The EXO2 sonde recorded data every hour for 180 days, and was equipped with the following sensors: optical dissolved oxygen, […]

Reduce the Number of Field Service Trips with Improved Biofouling Protection

For most users, field servicing of water quality sensors is a significant part of their monitoring budgets. And a reduction in the number of field servicing trips can have a huge cost savings. YSI has been testing the EXO sondes at some pretty fouling intensive sites over the past 12 months. One of the goals […]

Field Tests Show Strong Agreement Between EXO and 6-Series Time-Series Data in South Carolina Estuary

In March 2012, YSI (a Xylem brand) released its next-generation water quality sonde, the EXO2, which represents a number of advances in sensor and anti-fouling technology. To ensure that a transition to the EXO2 would not introduce discontinuities into long-term data sets established with existing YSI 6-Series sondes, a field comparison of the two sonde […]

The Next Generation of CTDs Just Got Smaller, Smarter and Tougher

CTDs are the core sensors for oceanographic measurements, providing information on water quality, water density, and speed of sound. Many CTDs are designed to operate in specific applications such as vertical profiling or long-term monitoring and include capabilities such as data logging, high-speed sampling, antifouling systems and additional sensor inputs. Although such systems can offer […]
