Are you struggling to interpret the results of a recent data logger deployment? Do you need to estimate how many board-feet of timber, or how many deer, live in a parcel of forest? Do you need to retrieve and analyze historical streamflow data? Plan a field sampling campaign? Contact me and see how I can help.My professional career as a scientist began with locating earthquake epicenters for the Alaska Volcano Observatory, and moved on to include collecting water and ice samples and analyzing them on a mass spectrometer at the International Arctic Research Center. I spent many summers as a volunteer for the National Park Service in Yellowstone Park, and wrote several papers and presented at AGU about my hot springs research.
More recently I combined usage records from electric vehicles with weather data, to show how much the cars’ range was affected by changes in temperature. (Gasoline-powered cars are heated by waste heat from the engine, but electric cars have to use the battery for both heating and air conditioning.)
I've added a new page devoted to my work in Yellowstone, featuring a discussion of how to measure the height of a geyser eruption, including the spectacular activity of Steamboat Geyser in the summer of 2018.
