Hello from the Luquillo Critical Zone Observatory in Puerto Rico! After hauling 700+ pounds of luggage to the airport and paying $1300 in bag fees, we finally made it here. Now we just have to schlep it all up into the mountains and through the jungle, no big deal right? This year we brought along seismic refraction equipment, a magnetometer, an ohmmapper, and a multitude of ground penetrating radar antennas to investigate variations in bedrock depth between different geologic terranes. To follow along on our journey and to learn more about the work we do in Puerto Rico, check out the AGU Instagram page between June 24-June 28 where I will posting as part of the guestgrammer series.
