Yesterday was presentation day. We went to Kualoa Ranch, our research site host. Kualoa Ranch is a humongous property where the 2.7 square mile Ka’a’awa Valley is just a part of the property. On the other side of the valley is their headquarters where we would meet in the morning before heading into the valley where did our research. We met there yesterday at one of the facilities to give individual presentations on our research, 15 of us gave 10 minute presentations to an assorted audience of students, ranch staff and ownership, and community members. I was worried that we would all go over our time and bore the life out of the audience, but everyone did a really good job condensing our research into 10 minute chunks and I think the event went really well.
Here is my presentation: Mapping Vertical terrain – online
Here is my final paper: http://www.csulb.edu/colleges/cla/departments/geography/nsf-reu/wiki/2013-projects/greg-hosilyk/
After we gave our presentations, we gathered for a group photo and headed to dinner. That night, we blew off some steam at the barn.
Today, we’re cleaning, packing and heading to the airport. We have some time off in the afternoon before heading to the airport, but we can’t go too far, so we’ll probably just hang around here or go to the local beach. So, that’s it, back to my normal life, actually I can’t wait, I miss it.
Thanks for reading.
