Down for the core.

I am currently reading this paper on some volcanic stuff on the moon. I am either really tired, or most of it’s going over my head, maybe a combination.

Today we went coring in a bog. It was a pretty cool experience. Got to do some real field work type stuff and talk about the practical applications of the things I’ve learned in my time here. Possibly got some ideas for senior thesis stuff/internship opportunities.

Spent most of the day wandering around in a couple feet of water and trying not fall over. We were going to go to two locations, but we got rained/stormed out (as it turns out, standing in a bog while holding a very tall metal object during a thunderstorm is unsafe). It also turns out that I am terrible at taking pictures as I have nothing of us actually doing any coring. Just some random pictures and some of our cores.

Now, to do geology on them.
