One of Dr. Neish's new "friends."

Not much of an update….

Been busy marking essays.... Also, Reading Week last week! Also, I've been composing a draft of my Thesis' introduction. *********** My spiceinit-ing is finished for my unnamed craters still requiring MDIS swatches, though.  Very soon, I'll have completed QGIS files... Continue Reading →

Spiceinit Wolf

Bad "Spice and Wolf" pun.... Not much to report this week...; I've been getting myself back into the hang of using the mdis2isis >> spiceinit >> mdiscal >> cam2map procedure I used back last summertime, now for craters I missed... Continue Reading →

Aside — fairly geologist-friendly anime.

This is for aspiring geoscientists who also watch the occasional anime:  Watch Land of the Lustrous (Houseki no Kuni) and name as many of the twenty-something "Gems" as you can -- before the show names them for you! You can begin... Continue Reading →

Update: An abstract + good figures.

LPSC 2018 is coming in March, which I am planning on attending regardless of whether my submitted abstract gets accepted or not.  Looking forward to it, either way! My crater catalog has been scrutinized and four craters so far have... Continue Reading →

How do they look?

I've completed all the statistical analyses possible through QGIS, so now all that's left to do is calculate errors and display it all in some pretty little plots. In the meantime, I'm going to follow some advice given by Dr.... Continue Reading →

All craters digitized… and re-digitized!

In preparation of conducting the mathematical analyses of my mercurian craters, I have completed the GIS files of all 36 of these craters including the two or three that have less-than-optimal data files associated with them.  All MDIS, MLA/USGS, and... Continue Reading →

Back at it again.

Seven more craters have been plotted in my ongoing illustration of Mercurian crater melts vs RCL.  Not only that, but I also managed to create a melts-vs-rays illustration using the five (yes...only five of my 36 craters show the asymmetric... Continue Reading →

Burning Bright

After nearly two decades of performing admirably, the Cassini spacecraft, nearly out of fuel, made one last service to Science by plunging into Saturn's atmosphere sending its final stream of data back to Earth before burning up and thereby becoming... Continue Reading →

Aat Laaaaaaassst!!

After a month of failure to get Isis3 to properly render the MDIS-NAC files I downloaded from the MODE, success has, ultimately, been mine.  Ailey crater, which sorely needed these high-resolution images because of a pesky shadow in the MDIS... Continue Reading →
