Internship: Yellowstone National Park Integrated Studies

Yellowstone National Park Integrated Studies

Summary: The subsurface structure and mineralogy of Yellowstone thermal areas is not well understood. The goal of the project supported by the internship is to evaluate mineral assemblages in drill hole core collected from Yellowstone National Park using spectral methods, determine subsurface structures using
