This week is difficult to reflect on. It was both highly eventful and highly uneventful. It was uneventful in a way because I worked more on projects outside of RECCS (such as the summer class that I am enrolled in) and catching up with my family during 4th of July weekend and watching fireworks. However,… Read More


Analyzing the ground truth data, I found the paths that are optimal to take if you want to find Gold. Some of these blast holes yielded up to 200 p arts per million of Gold. Please take a look: -Henry      … Read More


I often times find myself with some sort of word or sentence that gets stuck in my head, like one of those annoying pop songs on the radio. When this happens, I find myself most inspired to craft a poem around the word or sentence. I have been like this my whole life; written language… Read More

So far, I have been focused on collecting data because that’s what we need, to collect and interpret information to better understand what’s going on with… Read More


The data slicing and dicing is still a work in progress as I try to develop new questions to follow after creating different graphics to analyze at Mauna Loa. This week I am so grateful for the experience of working at NOAA and the opportunities and knowledge that the office presents daily. The building is… Read More


No, I’m definitely NOT talking about the children’s band. When I say “wiggles,” I’m referring to the images we see on our seismograms here in the geophysics department when searching for earthquake data. So why exactly does this research matter? Well, earthquakes tend to be a hot topic in geology, and there is definitley a… Read More
