We were able to finalize my code (on Friday), and finally able to see our “results.”  Just in time! Thankfully, there isn’t much need to really analyze and figure out what’s going on, that’s more of a “future work” type of study.  Otherwise, this week was all about preparing my poster and presentation for next… Read More

Well I think last week was the most frustrating week for me because I had the vibe people were getting annoyed with me asking for help. It seemed as if my mentor possibly had too much on her plate juggling everything, but I have to give her SO MUCH credit for being patient. IT was… Read More

With just one week left, there’s not much more to do beyond finishing up the slides for my talk this Friday and making revisions to my submitted poster draft! The past few days have also been consumed by writing my AGU abstract and revising it approximately 572 times. One would think, with as often as… Read More

Phew, this week has been a crunch for me. I have finally completed my rough draft of my poster and powerpoint presentation. I have met with Jenny and Rick on separate occasions and they have helped me narrow down the main points of my project. I feel confident with my poster and powerpoint but now… Read More

Throughout this internship, I’ve managed to get my feet wet with a lot of new things, almost like taking mini-workshops on a variety of new topics (with the help of some really great teachers). Really I’ve done this for anything from space weather to magnetic fields to statistics (thanks, by the way, for your help… Read More

Well last week was yet another week of processing failures. At every turn we seem to encounter issues getting the processing done. The good news is that we still have a 3 good interferograms . Once I am able to work with the person who knows how to do the ground based radar processing, we… Read More

This last week I managed to get my first results and I am at the stage where I can now start to do research into everything else. Getting these results were very tricky though, as the first set I got were wrong as one of them was very vague and not accurate. Adding a few… Read More

You may have read my previous blog posts about the other 2 experiments that I have done this summer.
