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 →

Post-Space Day: a slight update.

Current crater count = 14 named craters, 13 unnamed craters (27 total; removed a couple craters that weren't viable for the study, but (re-)added a few more new + previously identified craters). Smallest crater = Ailey @ 23 km in... Continue Reading →

What I know so far…: Mercurian craters.

With "Space Day" coming up next week @UWO, I figured it'd be a good idea to jot down what I've noted about fresh crater impact melts on Mercury in preparation for that fateful day. As if I didn't already have... Continue Reading →

Fresh impact melts – the best of the best (so far).

The following are the absolute finest Mercurial craters in possession of impact melt located just beyond their respective crater rims, listed from most to least optimal candidates: 1 = Hokusai (57.75, 16.71; 114 km).  Lots of quality images available, and... Continue Reading →

Do ya wanna… search for impact melts around fresh Mercurian craters?

This week will be the second that I'll have spent on the new, alternative thesis idea involving attempting to correlate occurrence of impact melts about fresh impact craters on Mercury to the location of the rim-crest highs of those same... Continue Reading →
