As ususal, the orientation week closed with a bonfire and BBQ in the beautiful San Lorenzo Canyon. Hiking, eating, star gazing and stories of local (and inter-galactic) visitors to the region were pleasant diversions for the interns after intensive days of learning content and skills. The next morning the interns all flew out from Albuquerque to begin their summer adventures. Many traveling directly to their host institutions to begin their summer research while a few returned to their home institutions to wrap up finals. As usual this year's program features a spectrum of research topics from the analysis of tremor to the acquisition of airgun data on the Mississippi River. You can check out the progress of all of the interns by checking out their blogs. To faciliate this, the homepage of the internship site features the Latest Blog Entries.
