So far I have been reading alot of scholarly articles about seismic microtremor analysis, the FACT site, and the Nevada Test Site. My project changed upon my arrival and I will now be working with a new type of seismic technology, known as a rotational seismometer. Hopefully we have succes with this new tool and i will be doing al bunch of field work pretty soon. Next week and the following week I will be making two trips out to Las Vegas to work on the Nvada Test Site. we are installing some type of infrasound intsruments which detect pressure differences. I will also get to actually see them use the explosive in this test!
As far as my goals go, I wanted to do fieldwork for one. I also wanted to become familiar with Matlab, Unix, and any other program I may encounter. I know it takes years to become proficient, but I atleast want to know alittle bit more than the basics. I also want to learn more about the geoscience life working in a national lab versus in industry or academia. Creating networks is another goal I plan to accomplish, as well as having a successful project and learning as much as i possibly can.
