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

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 →

A Mercurian “Hybrid Theory”?

24 of my 36 Mercurian craters have been almost fully analyzed at this point, and so a plot akin to what is present in Neish et al. (2014) and Neish et al. (2017) has been derived for these craters: The... Continue Reading →

Some “life-hacks” for enjoying a Solar Eclipse.

Today, much of North America got to enjoy a rather nice-looking Solar Eclipse.  Me included! Viewing an eclipse in progress is best done using a telescope decked-out for the job.  For example, at Western U such telescopes were available for... Continue Reading →

This is a test … of my crater-melt analysis method.

MDIS-NAC images have been downloaded for all the craters in my catalog that have useful NAC files worth downloading -- all except two, if I remember correctly. But, over half of my craters are already fit enough to be analyzed... Continue Reading →
