Obviously I am not an avid blogger.
Things have been moving along pretty smoothly. Sue has been fantastic to work with. I’ve been finding a lot of events – some of them look really nice, and I’m getting this “repeating earthquake” thing. It’s fantastic when looking through the output from the cross correlator and you see 5 events in a row that look exactly the same. Granted, it picks up a lot of noise as well, but I’m just excited to be seeing events buried in all those seismograms. We’re putting the subspace detector on hold. It’s also hit me how much a year’s worth of data is. It’s been a pain to organize everything, and I probably wont have time before I leave to finish running everything. I’ll be continuing work on this project throughout the year though, so my last day here isn’t as strict a deadline, which is nice.
My abstract has been written, revised and is ready to submit. It would have been submitted yesterday, but AGU’s website was being finicky for some reason. Pretty excited to get that checked off, although now I need to worry about the poster.
I’ve been making progress on the grad school search. I know I want to continue studying subduction zones, and have narrowed it down to a handful of schools. Next step is to write some emails and make some contacts.
Only two and half weeks left. I wish I had more time to focus on this project (rather than having to balance it with school, which is what will happen this fall) but I am ready to leave Socorro (it feels smaller every day) and get back to Chapel Hill.
