We were finally able to get all our data collected and started the analysis process. It is a lot of data and is going to take a long time to process. The final two days of collecting data went well but I got a little too much sun and ended up getting sun burnt. My partner Jessica brought her husband and nephew on the final day of collecting data and that made things go way faster. Our original thought was maybe 10 grids and now after its all done, the final count is 20. Next week we our concentrating on analyzing the data.

Week 4

Arlee Pow-wow 2019 SKC science tent

This week was another week spent fighting the weather but still managed to get some things done. Monday NASA came to our site and did some imaging for us to use in conjunction with our GPR data. Tuesday was bad weather but still went to the site and received some books from Tony to use on my paper. Wednesday as you all know did not go as planned but was still able to get some productive things done. Tony went over our papers and gave us some guidance. Friday was the best day of them all because it was spent at the pow-wow volunteering for the science tent watching the stream table. At first I was a little nervous but soon was comfortable and able to relax. Also talked to a lot of friends and family I have not seen in a while. This coming week we are hoping to finish up the data collecting and concentrate on the analyzing.

Working at home

After the weekly video chat I have been doing work at home (bad weather) and trying to hash out my ideas on how to make my project better. We our planning on going to the field again on Monday and Tuesday, after those two days the cemetery collection of data should be done. The interpretation of the data is next and one of the most important aspects of understanding GPR. My partner jessica is gonna go over it with me again and I also have some books that will help me to better understand. Next week we our also volunteering at the annual powwow to help at a children education booth and should be lots of fun.

Week Three

We got the ball rolling this week because we were finally able to make it our site to collect data. On Monday it was a good day got three grids done but roasted a little. On Tuesday we went a little earlier and got another three grids done but left before the heat of the day hit. I am finding that its a little harder than it looked but easier than I thought it would be. This is my first BLOG ever.
