#12728 2 Mar 2019 Approved Notes:

YSI conductivity probe calibration check was successful prior to sampling, however during sampling, salinity and conductivity were reading 0.0 ppm. Corrective action was to calibrate conductivity, the meter worked fine after that.

The YSI reported "UNDR" under range at the base depth of 1.4m. The DO calibration check was successful prior to sampling. DO readings at all other depths at this location and at the following location were fine.

Recommend factory calibration of the YSI.
