    fun here is what one site looked like Not exactly exciting is it Also I realized that I completely left out the fact that while my parents were here my Dad and I went to a limestone cave created by Karsts landforms in southern Indiana I ll need lots of room for pictures of that so it will have to be its own post maybe tomorrow or next week Link to Post Comment on this Post 0 Comments Kind of a long post July 12th 2011 It has come time for me to report back on my last two weeks since my post last week was really quickly typed up with no spell check sorry about all the mistakes My week before 4th of July weekend consisted of me processing more data while my professor went out and did some field work While he was gone I worked hard to process data Unfortunately I was thinking very clearly and made a huge mistake that I didn t know how to fix on Tuesday afternoon Luckily after about an hour of thinking followed by another hour of trial and error I figured out how to fix it all by myself My Professor came back on Wednesday evening and we did the IRIS review sheet thing and he told me he was proud I was able to solve the problem all on my own In the end I did lose about one days worth of work though My family arrived in town late Wednesday night I took half of Friday off and went with them to finally wander the downtown shopping of Bloomington IN There is some really fun stuff here and I will have to go back again I think We also drove up to Indianapolis and visited the zoo as well as the NCAA museum It was fun going to the museum because they had a picture of my school s mascot go Michigan Tech Huskies and it was the only picture where the mascot was wearing hockey skates So appropriate We also fit in some more shopping some minigolf despite a heat index of 110 and lots of good food My family left on Tuesday morning while I left for field work in Southern Illinois digging holes The field team consisted of me one IU grad student and two other geology undergrads from Purdue We worked out of Carbondale Illinois and I got a real good look at lots of corn and soybean fields and lots of dirt I have also never sweated so much in my life But the work wasn t too bad I spent a lot of time at McDonalds while I was there because it had free wifi On my last day down there one of the guys from Purdue and I were sent to a site really far west border of Illinois Unfortunately we couldn t reach the owners and the gate to the property was closed so we couldn t dig a hole but the drive was gorgeous We drove past some huge gorgeous limestone cliffs The best part was that the cliffs had mines in them that really cold air came gushing out of It was like driving past giant refrigerators and it felt wonderful The cliffs were on the edge of the Mississippi flood plain which was still mostly flooded I was so awesome seeing the huge flood plain compared to the size of the Mississippi I am used to in Minnesota I got back from field work Saturday afternoon and went to my professor s house for a party celebrating one of the grad student s defenses he had done that week It was pretty fun and dessert was delicious I am back to processing data now as well as beginning to look at the tomography code The tomography code seems like a challenge to work with but do did the data processing at the beginning and that s easy stuff now I m hopeful I can lean it and get a good model out of it in the next few weeks Well I think I ve typed enough for two weeks now and my fingers are getting tired Also my internet died at my apartment so all my internet time had to be done either at my internship or somewhere with free wifi I m at Barns Noble right now I m sick of Mcdonalds Hopefully I can get the internet at my apartment fixed by this weekend Who knew modems could be so tricky Link to Post Comment on this Post 4 Comments Field work time for me July 5th 2011 I will try to do a longer entry later but I ll give you the short version now My family came to visite me and got here Wednesday night and staryed until thismoreneing when took off back home This was a fun visit and we did some cool things I ll talk about later The bigger news was that Wednesday evening when I got to meet with my advisor the one hour he was here last week he told me I would be going out and doing field work starting today Teusday for the entier week So I have been a bit overwhelem with being busy and with the really hot and humid weather here We had a heat index of 100 degrees over the weekend It should be a little better this week while I am installing seismometers but some how I think it will feel pretty hot out while I am digging holes all day I will give you more info on my previous week and on how my feild work goes this weekend after I get back from field work on Saturday Link to Post Comment on this Post 0 Comments Lost but then found June 27th 2011 It turns out my worry about storms last week was unfounded While it did storm again and the power didn t go out the data I

    function that looks like As you can see it would be impossible to match every feature you see with this model but the idea is the replicate the major ones I have also been writing my first GMT script this week Starting it was a bit of a struggle but Rob s tutorial and the one online were very helpful And of course Erin helped me work out some of the kinks once it was up and running Just finished this guy a few hours ago still slightly shocked that everything did what it was suppose to This is the lovely Ryukyu Arc in southern Japan The red triangles are all of the stations The contour lines are slab depth The solid black line is 6km depth and the dashed ones are 50km 100km ect Finally wandered into the Peabody museum yesterday my parents were in town It is pretty amazing the variety of what they have there Also we have our last softball game today wish us luck Link to Post Comment on this Post 6 Comments 5 down 4 to go July 6th 2011 Still alive for those of you who were concerned It has been a crazy first three weeks here in New Haven but so far so good The plan as of now is for me to create receiver functions for nine seismic stations along the Ryukyu Arc in SW Japan and then do some forward modeling to try and locate anisotropic layers in the subduction zone Specifically we are looking for evidence of serpentinization in the upper mantle of the subduction zone So far I have completed five receiver functions and have gotten quite the hang of it while becoming comfortable using unix and SAC Erin the grad student I am working with has been incredibly helpful especially as I was struggling through the first few stations I will be using GMT later and am hoping it wont send me through too many bottles of advil this is one of my first reciever functions the vertical axis is back azimuth and the horizontal axis is time in sec from the first P wave arrival The left box is the radial component an the right box is the transverse component red indicates a transition from slow to fast while blue indicates a region of fast to slow On a less academic note I have unofficial joined the geology departments softball team we play a game once a week against one of the other science departments last week was neuroscience I believe We are not very good but there is a grill and beer involved so no one is terribly upset that we have yet to win a game While it has rained quite a bit I have to say I am grateful for a break from the southern heat and as for the obligatory workspace picture I am pleased to annouce that I am no longer homeless there you have it over andddd out Link to

    without rest to meet us at Mud Island to restart our surveying The day before we had done 13 miles of survey leaving about 6 miles left for the following day Our intention was to knock out the last 6 miles in a few hours and then spend the rest of the day disentangling our entire operation from the M V Strong Well I looked down at some data that I was processing and the next thing I knew I was getting tapped on the shoulder by Steffen who informed me that it was time to take everything apart The next three hours were a scramble of disconnecting equipment packing it all into boxes and loading it into a big box truck to be taken back to Austin It was really amazing to see how well we communicated as a team now that we had spent 18 days on the river getting to know each other We took a few group photos with the crew and then left for Memphis That marked the end of our research cruise and I definitely had mixed feelings towards the end Part of me was happy to be sleeping in my own bed and not having to get up at 5 30am to get to the boat but the other part realized how unique of an experience that was and knows that I will treasure my time on the M V Strong for the rest of my life Link to Post Comment on this Post 1 Comments Weatherman Be Damned June 23rd 2011 Well it has been a very interesting couple of days on the boat To start off with the small compressor experienced some technical issues starting two days ago One of the circuit boards in the control unit had a loose connection that would cause the safety on the compressor to trip and turn itself off This was quite an unfortunate issue because then we would quickly begin using the air in our reserve tanks and the pressure that we were firing at would drop rapidly from 2000psi to as low as 1800psi before we caught it This is a bad thing because 1800psi releases a lower magnitude and lower frequency range of sound which can mess with our data quality After diagnosing the problem as being the result of a connectivity problem within the compressor electronics we took apart the computer and started playing around with the boards inside We found that by pressing on the front of one of them we were able to keep the compressor running So although we had ordered and received a new computer we decided to find a way to keep the old one running as long as possible To accomplish this we used an intricate assortment of zipties and a small bundle of wire to push the board at the right point so that the necessary connection was made Although it was a mildly rag tag solution to the problem it did the trick shown by the fact that the compressor has run the past two days without any further issues It will eventually die on us but at that point we have a spare computer to replace it with therefore we have little concern that the little compressor will be the limiting factor in us reaching our goal I was also really excited a couple of days ago because I got assigned to change the oil in the small compressor Now this task requires removing the plug on the drain tube funneling the waste oil into a bucket replacing the plug pouring oil into a tube at the top of the engine while checking an indicator at the bottom of the engine to see the oil level Sufficed to say this job would be best done with five hands and three eyes Fortunately one of the crewmates offered to help me without me having to ask or else this would have been a total fiasco That being said I started off the oil change by wanging my hand against a bolt while removing the drain plug and tearing some skin off of a knuckle on my right hand Hurray for war wounds Shaking that off we had squeezed the smallest funnel we had in between some of the pipes that were in front of the drain tube To the funnel we had attached a hose to lead to bucket but it was not quite long enough to trust that it would stay in the bucket at all times which took up another hand So we remove the plug and oil starts pouring into the funnel and into the bucket as planned Well I take my eyes off the system for a second and when I look back I find that the hose is not in the bucket and the funnel is overflowing onto the pallet and deck I grab rags to try and catch as much of the oil dripping onto the deck as possible while David plugs the hole with his thumb to control how quickly the oil comes out I make sure that the hose is still in the bucket and then pull back a second to look at the damage The rest of the job was pretty easy not too many complications and there was some clean up during and after but all in all I would call the project a success with room for improvement next time around It is really amazing to me how much you can learn about something just by trying it and making your own mistakes Next time I will tape the hose to the grating lip of the bucket to keep it from moving plug the drain hole to control to flow and be more careful when opening the drain plug Otherwise things have been going pretty smoothly though to explain the title of this blog post the forecast for our area has been fairly bleak as of late predicting that we will be over cast for the entire last week of our cruise It was rainy again on Tuesday yesterday was just cloudy and today is turning out beautifully So as a result I say Weatherman be damned because we are going to have god weather simply because I will it to be so As I have been processing data and learning how to pick velocities I have been more time looking at the preliminary data with the researchers and have been seeing some pretty cool structures on the preliminary CHIRP and seismic data from our array Hopefully we will have enough evidence to classify them as faults More on that later I must get back to sitting on the barge and watching the buoy Link to Post Comment on this Post 2 Comments Houston We Have A Problem June 17th 2011 My Geology professor Dr Brooks once said to our class every time that you put equipment overboard you have to accept that there is a chance that it will not be returned to you Now I liked this phrase because it carries with it the idea that marine field work in particular puts a lot of wear and tear on the equipment we use which is a testimony to the hostile environment that we work in The basic point is however that a good portion of every research cruise is spent calibrating the equipment for a specific task at hand maintaining the equipment to keep it from getting broken and fixing equipment if it does happen to fail Fortunately so far we have not lost any equipment on this cruise knocks on wood but there has been some necessary maintenance which has given me the opportunity to better acquainted with some of the equipment on board Steffen is our resident Mr Fix It so I tend to stick fairly close to his side when I know that things need to be fixed The biggest project so far that the team has tackled had to do with the streamer So the streamer is a line of hydrophones inside of a thick rubber tube that is filled with oil not sure what type somewhere between crude and canola which performs two purposes First it allows for easier propagation of sound to the hydrophones air is a terrible medium Second and more importantly it makes the stream closer to neutrally buoyant so that it neither rides on the surface nor scrapes the bottom If the streamer is on the surface then our data becomes muddied with a lot of low frequency noise but if it hangs too low then there is a greater chance that it will catch on some debris floating within the water column So our task was to make the streamer as close to neutrally buoyant as possible To do this however we needed to know how deep the streamer was sitting in the water column which was accomplished through the use of three transducers A transducer for those that do not know is a device that measures and records the pressure that it is experiencing at a particular moment e g once a minute and then stores those values within itself The pressure can then with some compensations and correction can be correlated to find the depth in the water that the transducer was while it was recording This is really useful because no wires are necessary you just attach the transducer to the equipment where ever you want to know the depth and then take off the data at the end of the day We took a day of data which showed that the streamer had an average of about 6 8 meters which was far too deep The optimal level would be around 1 2 meters So the next day we added a LOT of flotation along the streamer Of course this resulted in the streamer floating on the surface which made for less than desirable data The next day was spent taking the streamer in and out of the water to remove floats to the point where we saw the streamer LESS than before but the data at the end of the day showed that it was still running shallow Finally on the third day we removed a smidgen more floatation and the data showed that streamer was floating around 2 3 meters consistently except whenever eddies suck a part of the streamer down to 10 meters this another major worry of ours Similar customization had to occur for the electronic equipment used in the lab the CHIRP and the airgun though we have persevered through them all This just goes to show you that even though a piece of equipment can be very advanced it will probably still need to be modified and played with to make it work correctly for your purpose As for things breaking however we have been lucky since nothing has completely died So far we have had to perform an oil change on the big compressor and replace its desiccant filters We also do basic checks for chaffing and tightness on the equipment constantly so we can hopefully catch something before it goes bad There have also been some electronic problems with the small compressor it has a tendency to turn off randomly and issues retaining enough pressure in the big tanks to support 2000psi at a shot every 6 or 7 seconds Other than these small issues however things are going swimmingly We are a couple miles short of where we should be as a result of the rainstorm and working on the streamer but otherwise we are collecting a lot of really good data and that is what really matters I ll post again soon Link to Post Comment on this Post 0 Comments Long Days Heavy Equipment Lot and Lots of Sun What more could a boy want June 15th 2011 Well it has been quite a while since my last blog and some much has happened So lets begin I was very sad to leave my fellow IRIS interns at orientation I feel as though we had fallen into an awesome dynamic group of individuals and even though we all had come from different disciplines and backgrounds we worked together to create a community that was bonded by a mutual desire and interest to learn about and work in the field of seismology and geophysics But alas we all had to move on from that environment to our individual amazing opportunities though I will continue to be excited about getting to see all of them at AGU in December Now as to my amazing opportunity I am not going to repeat my project description because I have that on my profile though I suggest you go read it for clarification on some of the stuff I am about to describe Other then the fact that my luggage was about 13 hours behind me my travel into Memphis went smoothly though I did have to run to both of my flights A grad student that is working on the same project Lei Guo pictured below picked me up from the airport gave me a quick tour of the CERI and then dropped me off at my apartment complex After fighting with the electronic key to get into my room for the first time my girlfriend arrived and we proceeded to outfit my room with all the essentials while taking a tour of the area The weekend was nice and relaxing giving me time to move in meet my roommate make dinner with Ado and mentally prepare for work on Monday However not much mental preparation was needed for work because the first three days consisted of sorting out the bureaucratic issues with direct deposit per diem pay for time in the field computer account access at CERI choosing which side of the cubicle Ado and I were going to choose we decided on the inside section but opposite sides so that there was not a wall between us I will be interested to observe our productivity in this environment but I think we both agree it was a good decision though she has more light on her side and long chats with our mentors clarifying exactly what we were going to be doing that summer I had a long talk with Beatrice the first day where she ran through a presentation she had prepared on the project to give to scientific communities This helped to confirm a lot of my ideas about what I thought the project was about and provide me with the necessary background and language to be able to explain it to other people She also talked with me about the 18 days that we were going to spend on the Mississippi collecting data and what I should pack for the excursion So over the next three days I packed got my stuff in order and generally prepared for the trip Thursday was setup day I met the other researchers that would be working on the boat with me Kirk MacIntosh and Steffen Saustrup from University of Texas Institute for Geophysics UTIG and Brian Waldron from the University of Memphis We caravanned over to the United States Army Corps of Engineers USACE base in Ensley Tennessee where a big truck packed full of our equipment was waiting for us in the lot dropped off by Steffen and Kirk the day before After passing through security we went and met the boat on the dock where we unloaded all of our equipment using a forklift pallet jack crane and our bare hands The rest of the day about 6 hours worth was occupied by untangling and running wires around the ship setting up the electronics necessary to collect data setting up the seismological equipment for easy deployment the next couple days and getting lunch at an amazing barbeque restaurant in town This day would will mark my shortest work day for the next three weeks about 10 hours Friday was our first day collecting day and was a pretty typical day on the river I got up at 5 20am in order to be showered packed up and have eaten something by the time Brian picked me up from my apartment The crew left at about 6 30am to get to the boat ramp so that the little boat the Tiger Shark could ferry us to the Strong We get to the Strong start drifting down river at about 2 mph deploy all the equipment within 30 minutes of hopping aboard and are recording by 8 00am hopefully After that then next 7 5 hours are filled with keeping an eye on the equipment for pesky debris or unusual data anomalies basking in the broiling sun chatting up the crew writing blogs such as this one reading eating and watching the GPS to see when we have covered 15 miles of river so that we can pack up and go sleep We usually finish collecting around 4 30 or 5 00pm after which it is all hands on deck to pull in the equipment save the collected data 37 times and collect our stuff If all goes well we are off the boat 45 minutes after we stop collecting and we are headed to the closest dock to get a ride to the hotel where we will be spending the night By the time we get to the hotel or in the case of the past two nights our residences in Memphis it is about 7 00pm which means that we have been awake for about 14 hours at that point The evenings include a shower dinner swimming possibly some volleyball any necessary internet activity and bed not necessarily in that order Then the cycle starts all over again Now I do not want to give any of you the slightest idea that I am complaining about this arrangement because I could not be happier I

    say We were shown around introduced to everybody It s true what they say bout Southern Hospitality The place is so quaint the people so friendly I m positive this is the place for me I met my professor for the very first time Everything seemed to be going just fine And then we started talking business And I realised how deep I was in this Wave propagations Yeah I can solve em But Fourier Transforms are a different problem Not only had I never heard of the term It was critical the calculations I had to learn I was convinced my Prof was a nut How could anyone learn transform analysis stuff Tuesday went by and I was in a fit I had tried all day but nothing to show for it I knew I wasn t going to give up But I wished I was at least given a heads up Maybe geophysics just wasn t for me And I was suited more with geology Wednesday came and I started to doubt If I could ever figure it out Were the professors here all just crazy That none of this math appeared to them hazy Who cared if we were in the time domain These Fouriers were all just a pain So Wednesday passed by with great frustration No chance of understanding or realisation Thursday came and I was forlorn When Prof said Let s talk of Fourier Transforms Does tomorrow sound good to you I said Yeah what else was I to do I sat at the computers thinking how to be prudent And who should come along but the Prof s grad student He told me not to worry bout the calculations because our Prof was a pro at the explanations Funny thing happened when Friday came I woke up in the morning not feeling the same I was determined to asky my questions No matter what the repercussions So the time had come face to face With Fourier Transforms my biggest disgrace But then we started to talk education And how my studies were a complication I realised he was under the impression That I was smart O a ludicrous accusation To me I felt like it explained a lot Why things didn t work out as I had initially thought When he realised math wasn t my best friend Fourier Transforms he taught me bringing my pain to an end It still takes a while for me to calculate it But at least I can follow and understand it a bit This brings me to the end of week 1 So for now my job here is done Link to Post Comment on this Post 5 Comments Extra Extra 1 Things in Memphis June 19th 2011 1 When the Heat Index reaches a critical level thus determining that it is too hot the bus fares are reduced to 25 cents to encourage residents to use public transport Their reasoning is that personal transport has

    left town again at least for today As of right now I can t do the field work side of my project nor the programming portion I m kind of at a stand still Guess I ll read up on some papers and some programming stuff for the remainder of my day Link to Post Comment on this Post 3 Comments Week 5 July 11th 2011 This week was a little shorter than the rest 4th of July fell on this past Monday so everyone had the day off There wasn t too much happening on my side of the town so I hung out with some of the friends I have made out here and had another day to relax The rest of the week was spent trying to make sense of a code to help me calculate focal mechanisms I and the Professor that I work under were both stumped so we have to wait until the following week to ask the guy that we got it from to make sense of it all and how to run it I went out to a seismic site to help the technicians install a new antenna onto an already installed seismic sensor The crazy thing was that all this vegetation had grown over the entire site so we had to use machetes to hack away at the plants that had overgrown it The installation was the most enjoyable part of any of the work I have done out here thus far Friday I was supposed to go to a seismic site and work on a new insulation technique based on the New Low High Noise models but that was cancelled due to rain Not a super productive week but I am still headed in the right direction The Professor that I work under said that the bulk of my work starts the following week I hope that he is right because I feel like my entire project has been moving rather slowly Can t wait for it to pick up the pace Link to Post Comment on this Post 4 Comments Week 4 Slowly but surely July 5th 2011 This was the start of the second third of my time here in Puerto Rico The most significant thing that happened is that I obtained the code for calculating the focal mechanism in the hypo inverse format Now I am still working to understand it all More to report on the next blog Link to Post Comment on this Post 0 Comments Week 3 June 26th 2011 My work here got interesting when I was notified on Tuesday that I would be doing some field work on Wednesday on a small island called Caja de Muertos I had to be at PRSN Puerto Rican Seismic Network at 5 30 a m ehich meant I had to wake up at 430 a m Our mission was to replace an older gps system on the island with a newer one We left before
