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.

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 →

Milestones for Summer 2017:

For me and my supervisor.... What I've done so far: >>GIS files for most of my 36 craters have been created, with rim, floor, and melts shapefiles made for each. >>MDIS-NAC files have been downloaded for all named craters (around... Continue Reading →

Mercury’s “Group of Seven.”

The "Group of Seven" was the name given to a number of Canadian artists who painted landscapes in the same style at around the same time; the original group was:  Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A. Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur... Continue Reading →

Fun-Fun-Fun!

GIS project files are currently being made for the original 13 named craters for which MDIS + MLA snippets have been obtained.  The MDIS crater files were easy enough to obtain, but the corresponding MLA was trickier -- north + south... Continue Reading →

I Haz Resultz!!

After a week or so of cataloging all the unnamed craters alongside the named craters I already cataloged, as well as re-inducting several more craters I previously discarded and even obtaining a number of brand new candidates, I -- at... Continue Reading →

Try Everything!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoKpPBM7fas The CPSX Field School experience has just ended, and so now the Grad-school summer vacation has officially begun!  Which means I can start making GIS projects for my Mercurian craters of interest....                ... Continue Reading →

An upcoming hiatus, + another small update.

As the Winter 2017 school year wraps up for me, I am soon coming up on many months of "free time" where I can really spend time on my Masters thesis -- instead of any chance I can get for myself.... Continue Reading →
