Final Goodbyes

Even though I live in the area, I wanted to spend the rest of the time with the people who were flying out Sunday. I was able to take Ali to the air port in the morning and see the other girls before I left for my softball games in the morning. I’m really going […]

Final Presentations

The day of our final presentations, it was really exciting to get to see everyone’s work. I was very happy to see the teachers and graduate students, and I was pleasantly surprised to see Dr. Hay. It was a really exciting day!! The food at the end was great!! I was very sad to part […]

Poster Pressure

I was still working with the data in the morning and the pressure was now on to get the poster done. This day was spent mainly working with data and organizing it in order to display it on the poster. There was definitely heightened anxiety in the lab, which made me nervous. At the end […]

July 5th

I spent the first part of the day in the Geology lab. At this point, I have combined tables to link the GPS coordinates with the temperature and conductivity data. I have also removed data that we think may be inaccurate because if it is below a certain level we see there is a chance […]

July 4th

Today was our day off so we were able to have some fun. We were able to go out on the Outrigger Canoes and then later we went to a barbeque. It was a very relaxing and fun day!

Another Lab Day

Today I continued with my work in the lab. We have Logger and GPS data from outrigger canoes, a fishing boat, and various different bays where we snorkeled and paddled on long boards. Its a lot to work with, and we’re hoping to find some interesting results.

Temperature and Conductivity Data

This morning we woke up and went straight to the geography lab at Long Beach. I was working on organizing the data, and later on in the day we were able to meet up with Dr. Becker. We went over the presentation we did in Kauai since he was unable to attend. We also discussed where […]

Travel Day

Today we got up and finished up our packing. It was really sad to leave the new people we had met in Kauai. It is now time to get back to Long Beach and process all of the data we have collected. I’m ready to get working and hoping to see some interesting results.


Today we got up bright and early to enjoy the sunrise. It was a beautiful day and it was great because it was also a day for a break. We spent the day packing and getting ready for our travel day. Later in the afternoon, we had a barbeque on the beach. We were able […]

Today we went out to collect water samples and collected data with the Loggers and the GPS. We went snorkeling in Prince Kuhio Bay to collect our data. The day was a little stressful because we ended the day in the ER to take care of Ali, but we were relieved and happy to see […]
