Caribbean Fault Mapping

Now this week is exciting because I get to start doing some real work on mapping these fault lines through a program called Trellis. This is especially exciting for me because I have never done something like this before. I find a night where I can just focus on this for hours, and just relax while simply mapping these fault lines. That is until I realized that this is much harder than I thought it would be for a newbie like me. I sat down in my chair and instantly drew a blank on how to even start. I instantly realized that this is the point of the internship, and that I needed to buckle down and start troubleshooting the issues I was facing. With my new cool, calm and collected attitude I start working on the map, and what do you know? It works! I start cranking out the segments one by one with ease and comfort, until the dreaded swans. There are about 12 fault names labeled under the name, “swan,” and for some reason I could not figure it out at all. It’s the same process, but from swan 5 and on, I could not figure out what was wrong. What’s even more interesting is that I was able to get the rest of faults after swan to work. With this accomplished I decided that it was a job well done and that I needed to pat myself on the back, and bring the issue up with Roby next week.
