It's been a while since I've posted, but it's also been a while since I've been able to really work. School seems to do that to ya!
This past semester was a WHALE. Two bi-term classes, one after the other, and a new programming class made for a difficult four months. However, I survived and passed all my classes with As and Bs! I'm now four steps closer to my meteorology degree and one step closer to my ASL minor.
We have a new Air Quality (AQ) building, it was placed back in September. It's more fitted for our needs and work, though it is smaller. Sacrifices have to come from somewhere, right?
Our Cave Air Flow project was awarded a grant from Western Kentucky University, so we're closer to putting three new meteorological towers in the cave!
With the help of my mentor, Shannon Trimboli, I was able to present at a research conference on some older data that was collected here at MACA. We're hoping this preliminary research will open more opportunities for cave atmospheric research in the future.
There have been a few instruments in the cave; it seems that people like to cut our cables and unplug our data loggers. There's still so much to be done, but work is continuing!
If you have any questions or want more information on anything, don't hesitate to shoot me an email or a message on here!
I plan to start a vlog soon so you all can see what it's all about here! If you have anything specific you'd like to see discussed or whatnot, let me know!
Until next time!
