Weeeeeeeeeee Are The Champions…!

I came.  I defended.  I passed. And so did the other Neishlings defending their Masters this year.  Yay!  (Of course, in hindsight, there never was really any doubt...!) Now, it's time to make revisions and submit the best possible final... Continue Reading →

Crunch-time hodge-podge.

Kind-of a long time coming, but EDRNAC images have been incorporated into the unnamed crater files in QGIS and, in places, shapefiles have been redrawn to accommodate the higher resolution data. Here are two such craters, with the greatest and... Continue Reading →

LPSC! (Not much else to write about…)

I had the fortune of being able to attend, and even present, at the 49th-annual LPSC (Lunar and Planetary Science Conference) last week, in the Woodlands, Texas (a suburb of Houston). I really only did two things at LPSC:  Listen... 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 →

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 →
