LRRD in Texas and Michigan.

Last week’s a blur for me–I spent most of it cranking on a proposal to do research on a beautiful watershed in Michigan’s UP. Keep your fingers crossed for us. This is the sort of real-world research and management consulting that compliments and strengthens our educational products. This project would involve collaboration with SIUC and some serious science, including climate change analysis. There is concern now that channel instability there could be related to precipitation regime change.

Jesse continued work on the Geobong, which still needs a socially acceptable name. This device has turned out to be even more interesting than I’d hoped, and I’m almost worried it’ll outshine the Emriver model. It’s beautiful to watch, and it’s teaching capabilites huge. We’re excited about GSA next week.
